This applies in the state of Florida.
Ok, here's the situation - My Fiance and I have just moved in to an apartment together. I had the apartment for about two months before she could move in with me, so i signed and was approved on the lease for the apartment. Now that she is moved in, due to regulations the apartment complex has on cars and occupants, my fiance would need to be on the lease in order to park her car (when she gets one) inside the complex. She filled out an application to be added to the lease, but was denied due to not having a job that brings in 2x the rent (of which i already can pay comfortably on my own), or being married to me.
She would get a job, however she does not have a car, and in order to get and keep the car at the apartment, she needs to be on the lease. (Catch 22 anyone?) And jobs within walking distance of the apartments are negligable, unless she was to seek employment by the complex itself, basically.
We would get married to resolve this (at least "on paper" and have the ceremony later), however, her parents wish to continue claiming her as a dependant on her taxes for the time while she is in college (starting as a freshman this year).
Hence my question: Can someone who is married still be claimed as a dependant on their parents taxes? Or if anyone else has any suggestions/ideas on possible solutions to this situation, please feel free.
