<P>If you mean claiming the "Amount for Children" credit, which was approximately $2000 per child...that is no longer a credit.&nbsp; As to other credits, such as Child Care Expenses, that is claimed by the spouse/partner with the lower net income.&nbsp; Fitness and arts credits may be claimed by either of you.<BR /></P>
