Social Services, living in a group home. I am required to pay a portion of my salary monthly to the state as partial child support. Can I still list my child as a dependent on my tax return and claim him as an exemption?

Child must live in your home for more than 6 months of 2010 and have the legal right to file them as a dependent., i.e. court standings. Massive penalties, I would suggest asking the IRS directly.
