With regards to the Eligible Dependent Credit, I was re-assessed and my claim was rejected because I had a set-off amount. However, I made two appeals to the CRA and on the second appeal, they granted my appeal because my separation said "to satisfy both parties obligation to pay child support". CRA told me that you need to clearly state that "both parties have a legal obligation to pay child support".

Even though my agreement had a set-off, it stated both parties had a legal obligation to pay child support. Do not use any "set-off" language it will raise flags like it did for me.

Make it super clear, you need to explicitly state
i) party 1 is legally obligated to pay party 2
ii) party 2 is legally obligated to pay party 1.

hope this helps
btw my appeal just came through last week so this is still fresh for me.
