== == When parents are divorced, the use of the children's exemptions is generally determined by the decree. It has nothing to do with who pays for what. The parent with whom the children reside for over 50% of the year may claim Head of Household status. At no time may both parents claim the same children in the same year on separate income tax returns.

Can the custodial parent claim both children and the earned income credit on their tax return if the non-custodial parent is behind on child support but usually you each claim one child?

The custodial Parent has the right to claim both children, but in your case if the NC parent is behind they will automatically take it from their tax refund anyway. But as with any agreement if it states the NC gets to claim one then you can only claim one. If there is not an agreement in that way, then the custodial has the right.
