Who can claim the kids on income taxes when parents are separated?

Is it legal for a parent to claim kids on income taxes if the kids don’t see him or live with him and he doesn’t support them financially (parents are still married but separated for 6 years)?

The IRS has rules regarding who qualifies to claim children of a divorced couple or of unmarried separated parents.
