Thank you for giving me the opportunity to assist you. I will give the best answer that I can with the information provided.
The rules for EIC state that you cannot qualify for the credit if one or both of you are a nonresident alien for any part of the year UNLESS you file married jointly and choose to treat your spouse as a resident alien for the entire year. (this means you must report spouse's worldwide income on the return).

You should also be eligible for the additional child tax credit presuming you have the income needed for the credit.
Please let me know if you need additional information.
