Replying to rxpharmd's question "I got married on December 29th, 1998 to a man that is a citizen of Bahamas ... Can we file married/jointly? And can we claim his son as a dependent?"My experience is that I married a foreign citizen in a foreign country. The marriage is recognized by the US government, but this may be dependent on the relationship between the US and the country of the spouse. We file a joint return. This was based on the advice of our tax accountant (at a major professional accountant agency), which is only meant to say I feel fairly confident that it is legal for our situation. I don't know anything about what would happen with the child in your situation.Of course my situation is inherently different from yours, and the fact that we file jointly might not imply that you are able to.Hope that helps a little!JC
