Hi, I was awarded 16k in ISOs. I was not able to exercise them until after a certain number of years of employment. However, I was laid off and I was told I lost them. Can the loss be written off in some way?

Hi, In 2018 my girlfriend and her two children lived me. The State provided my girlfriend some cash and SNAP (food credits) that were a continuation from 2017 when they were not living with me. The children's father provided no support. I paid 100% of the cost of housing, transportation, utilities, and food...minus the portion funded by the State for her and her kids food. She used the State's cash assistance for other things like clothing for her kids. The State also provided medical insurance for her and her kids. In January 2019, my girlfriend had our baby. I put him on my medical insurance and I paid all other costs for him. My question for my 2019 tax return is, Can I claim my girlfriend and her 2 daughters given that my girlfriend lives with me 100% of the time, doesn't work, but receives a little State cash and food credits that help her support herself and kids? Her daughters live with me 5 days a week and I\we don't receive any financial assistance from her kids father. There is no agreement between my girlfriend and her ex that he will claim them but he wants to. Thank you in advance.
