Yes, based on your info.
A qualifying relative is a person related to you or a person who lived with you for the full year. To qualify, the person must be:
•A relative who lived with you for the entire year:
•Your father or mother (including step-parents and in-laws)
•Uncle or aunt
•Son or daughter (including stepchildren and in-laws)
•Brother or sister (including stepsiblings, half siblings, and in-laws)
•Adopted (or placed for adoption)
•An eligible foster child (placed by an agency or court)
•A descendant of any of these.
Of any age
Not the qualifying child of another taxpayer
Someone who lived with you all year
Someone for whom you provided more than 1 / 2 of the person’s support. You can use a multiple support agreement (Form 2120) for this qualification.
Someone who earned less than $ 3,800
A U.S. citizen, U.S. national, or a resident of the United States, Canada, or Mexico. There are exceptions for a nonresident alien child who’s legally adopted if the child either:
•Lived with you in the United States
•Lived with you for the whole year if you didn’t live in the United States
Not filing a joint return unless it was filed only to receive a refund
