NO. The custodial parent has the right to file the child on his/her taxes. If anyone else files the child it is considered fraud. If you have joint physical custody either parent can file the child.

Paying Child Support has nothing to do with any right to claim the child on their return. A divorce agreement or custody agreement usually deals with rights to claim a child on a tax return. If there is no such agreement deciding who get to claim the child then the IRS rules do. Usually the first right is the custodial parent (the person the child lives with). Residency is one of the requirements to claim a dependent.

Do you have to pay child support if the other parent does not want it?

If the parent looking after the child is obtaining state benefits for the support of that child, then yes, you do have to pay child support. If you think about it why should other peoples taxes support your child when you have the responsibility (and capability) to do this. Your ex may not want anything to do with you but the responsibility of you supporting your child has nothing to to do with that. The state authorities will expect you to contribute to the support of your child and will adjust their payments to the custodial parent in proportion. However, if both of you have the means of supporting your child (children) without recourse to any state support. PROVIDED the child is well supported, who pays is a matter for you to decide between you. If this is the case why not put the child support you would have paid into a bank account for your child to access when they are older (say going to university).
