    You can claim your son as a dependent, however, keep in mind if you do, he will not be able to claim himself when he files and will likely have to pay taxes. As EIC is concerned, I'm not sure if at 19 he is a qualifying child, unless he is a student but you can still use him as a exemption. I don't think you can claim his girlfriend. There is no deduction for losing your job.
