The operative phrase here is "husband not working". The tax credits belong to you. Tell him to go find a job and support his family if he wants to claim the credits. He just wants free money. Mama don't play that!

It should be shared. If one claims it, the other can't. Marriage is 50/50. So whoever gets it on paper, the other should be able to share in it.

If he's prepared to be responsible for feeding and clothing the children and you believe he will then what's the problem? I would be useless at that so my wife gets the child benefit.

the money is for you and the child not him. If he hassles you go to the benefit office
