No, you cannot

obtain a copy of another taxpayer's return even if you are married to them. You can only obtain copies of returns that you filed, either individually or jointly with someone else.

If you are legally entitled to claim your children, you should do so. If anyone else tries to claim them the IRS will automatically investigate the matter and will award the exemptions according to the law and the proof provided by each taxpayer. If you try to e-file and your return is rejected for a duplicate SSN, you must file a paper return by mail.

If a judge has already ordered him to provide copies of returns to the court and he ignores the judge he would likely be found in contempt and would be jailed until he complied with the court's order.
