Unclaimed child

While it might not feel great, it is legal, if the following are true:

 

  • The children lived with your mother
  • The children are related to your mother as her grandchildren
  • They do not file a joint tax return
  • They do not provide more than half of their own support
  • Your mother and the children lived in the U.S.
  • You do not make more money than your mother
