Yes, if you apply (and send the supporting docs if and as requested) it should be very straightforward for them. They will adjust her eligibility accordingly. Just do apply! Itís a way better credit these days than when my kids were younger...

Meh, it's CRA - they interpret things their own way, and no matter how clear you are in the order/agreement, they still cause you issues.
CRA folks are not happy people. They are not knowledgeable people about their own rules. You are at their mercy.

For wording, specifically, I would say the *most* important wording, would be to make sure that you specify, that each parent pays the other child support. Jane and Joe will share equal custody of the kids. Because they share custody of the kids, Jane will pay Joe child support of "blah". Joe will pay Jane child support of "blah".

If you start putting in wording that CRA looks at, that only one parent is ultimately paying child support, they will deny that parent the credit.

Don't write anything like "leaving Joe to pay offset support of X dollars to Jane." That hates-their-job CRA agent reviewing your claim, will deny you.
