To qualify for head of household filing status, do I have to claim my child as a dependent?

Generally, to qualify for head of household, you must have a qualifying child or dependent. 
However, a custodial parent may be able to claim head of household filing status with a qualifying 
child even if he or she released a claim to exemption for the child.
