The usual recommendation is to calculate your taxes twice. Do one calculation with everything, and do another with the child care expenses removed. See what difference it makes in the refund/owing. That's what's due to the tax reduction on child care expenses. It's easy to do if you use tax prep software.

Of course, sometimes you might have to trust your ex to do this and report the correct amounts.
