<p>Darkstorm, you mentioned that you had "personal experience", presumably with the Condit bill. Could you give more details as to how it worked? My situation is detailed below:</p>
<p>I live in the Bay Area of CA and my daughter lives in Portland, OR with her mother. She turns 17 in July and will be a Senior in high school in the fall. As it happens out of my 3 children I came out of the divorce with the unconditional right to her tax exemption (rather than various insane accountant-enriching alternatives the lawyers insisted were "standard") so I've been deducting her on my CA and federal taxes for the past 5 years that I've been living here.</p>
<p>So, my questions are:</p>
<p>0) does this "Condit bill" have an assembly or senate bill number and year? The links at UCSB and other UC's are full of caveats and google doesn't find it.
1) does my daughter need to move to live with just after she graduates (i.e., before she turns 18) or just after she turns 18.
2) what would my daughter need to do during the one year of exception once she moves to have her residence with me? Driver's license, voting, etc. is all easy, but Oregon runs child support until age 21 for kids in school, so ...
3) would my daughter need to pursue a change of custody so that there is no lingering attachment to Oregon?</p>
<p>Thanks for any help.</p>
