In a shared custody situation, you will receive monthly CCTB (Canada Child Tax Benefit) payments equal to 50% (or actual portion of time spent with child) of the amount you would have received if the child resided with you on a full-time basis. The parent currently claiming the CCTB will have to send a letter to the CRA explaining the shared custody situation and the portion of time the child spends with each parent (i.e. 60%-40% split).
