go to IRS.gov and look up publication 501. There is a section all about divorce and claiming exemptions and you can figure out whether or not, based on your situation, you can claim your children.

The party who has the children the majority of the time claims the children as dependents. You can agree to do otherwise and that agreement is binding. In the absence, of an agreement the above rule applies.
