We need more details.  Who does the child live with?  Why would his grandma claim the child?  Does he live with Grandma?

4) the child hasn’t provided over ½ his support
5) No joint return with the exception for a joint return filed only to claim a refund of tax withheld when neither spouse is required to file and no tax liability would exist for either spouse if separate returns were filed
