As part of the divorce decree, Sarah was given custody of Elizabeth and Kevin was required to pay 1)
child support for Elizabeth’s care, and 2) alimony to Sarah until she remarries or dies. Because Kevin will
be making child support payments, the divorce decree provided that Kevin will be permitted to claim the
tax dependency exemption for Elizabeth until Elizabeth no longer qualifies as a tax dependent of either
parent and the decree obligates Sarah to sign and/or file any required forms to cause this result to
occur.

Sarah lost her job with Central Wisconsin Heating and Air on November 15 because of a reduction in
work force. She collected $1,250 in unemployment benefits during the year. She is currently looking for
another job.

with Central Wisconsin Heating and Air for each month in 2019 (the employer continued to cover her
through the end of the year). Elizabeth had qualifying minimum health insurance coverage provided
through Kevin through his work.
