If I pay child support and don’t want visitation rights can I file taxes for the child and have him as a dependent on my taxes?

Q: I want to know in NY Bronx and Yonkers if I’m paying child support for the child and request that I don’t want visitation rights can I still put this child as a dependent on my taxes?

A: If you’re the noncustodial parent, generally the answer is no – the custodial parent gets the deduction. Any other arrangement would generally be subject to negotiation. Call a Bronx Child Support attorney for more info.
