A father is separated from his common-law partner and has joint custody of his child.
He pays 2/3 of daycare expenses
He sees his child Wednesday evenings & alternate weekends. During this time the child is never at daycare.
Is he able to claim the 2/3 of the child care expenses he paid or just the Wednesday?
I have read You’re allowed to claim childcare expenses for the days that you have custody of your children, so it’s easier to keep childcare expenses separate where possible. Let’s say you’re paying all the childcare expenses, but only have the children three days a week, you wouldn’t be able to claim any costs of the other two days.
