That made me so fired up because I couldn’t even believe a woman would ask for someone else’s money who’s not biologically related to their child.What kind of greedy monster would even dare ask a question like that???!!!they really don’t know what the hell they are talking about. A year after the 3rd was born he found out it wasn’t his. One doesn’t work and her husband works three jobs to afford her spoiled brat lifestyle.
To those wanting to claim your step child as dependents on tax returns, you had better be sure you have a court order stating you have permission, as well as file the appropriate forms signed by the custodial parent because that is federal law.
I still manage to save for retirement, not incur debt and keep a little cash tucked away but we definitely don’t live the lifestyle we would otherwise be able to afford. I’m sure there’s lot of families out there in this situation.
