If childcare cost $10 000 for 2016, and he paid $6000 and you paid $4000. You photocopy the receipt for your files and only claim the amount you paid.

This isnt right. He pays the NET cost of the expense which means his portion of the after tax amount. She is eligible to claim the FULL child care amount on her taxes and then subtracts the tax benefit from the total they split.

Her ex is being a dick about it.
