Who gets to claim children as dependents after a couple divorces?

If the two parents between them provide over half the support and have custody of the child over half the year, then the custodial parent gets the dependency exemption. The custodial parent is the one awarded custody by the court. If joint custody is awarded, then the parent with physical custody the greater part of the year gets the exemption.
