Spousal amount - non resident spouse

I have a Canadian taxpayer who’s spouse is a non-resident of Canada for tax purposes. The taxpayer does not support her spouse and therefore, I don’t believe she is eligible to claim the spousal amount for him. However, the program is still generating a spousal amount on her return. I have entered all of his information on Sch 2 to indicate he is a non-resident. Is there a way to tell the program to remove the spousal amount or do I just override the credit to $0?

How much World wide income did you enter for him on Sched 2?

As Joe alluded to - the deduction is tied to the spouse’s income. The spousal deduction will not show up if the spouse’s income is either zero or something more than $12,069. Hope that helps!
