Please explain the basic facts and why your ex filing matters.

For example, do the children live with each of you for half the time?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Because I cannot file for any child benefits without his information. We are just going through a separation right now; in the middle of it as we speak, I am just curious as to how I can get the ball rolling faster. This has been an issue for a few years now, while together but now that we are separating, I am wondering what or how is the best way to proceed or to get his butt into gear?

Who says you cannot get child benefits without his information?

Is the child living with you most of the time?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I have tried to file for it but I need the fathers income tax return in order to get it filed. The child is living with me, yes, but that is kind of irrelevant when it comes to child tax benefits. They require both parents last year tax information which I do not have.
Family Lawyer: retireddebra,

Is there an order or agreement as to custody and access?

Ask Your Own Family Law Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
no, just our own agreement
Family Lawyer: retireddebra,
 replied 2 years ago

If there is a written agreement as to custody and access or else an order the CRA will not require the father to file.

Your entitlement to child tax benefits does not depend on the father when the child is living with you.

Have you spoke to the CRA about this?

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
