If you filed married filing jointly, you will get a stimulus check for both of you.  You would qualify for up to $1200 each.

If your spouse owes back child support the stimulus payment may be offset to pay child support.  If you have filed a form 8379 Injured Spouse form, only 50% of the stimulus payment will be offset.  Here is a document with the discussion.  If you have not filed a form 8379 and the stimulus payment is offset you will need to file that form to get relief as the injured spouse.
