If taxpayer is legally married, they can file jointly. He may claim child but will be limited to ODC. Unless something has changed re: ITIN's, taxpayer should be able to obtain an ITIN for both.

If the dependent child is living in Mexico there is no other dependent tax credit unless the child is a US citizen.
