How do I get advance child

If I already filed my 2020 tax return, but my kids were claimed on someone else 2020 tax return, how do I go about gettin the advance child tax credit for them now? They have been in my household since April 2021

I’ve tried that, it says I’m not eligible but where my children are in my care/live with me I thought I could maybe get the payments but where they we’re claimed already on 2020 tax return????

Where they were claimed on a 2020 return is immaterial to the 2021 advance ... try  this again... https://www.irs.gov/credits-deductions/advance-child-tax-credit-eligibility-assistant

Interesting ... I just tried that tool and first question knocks you out ... so at this time it seems like advance payments will not be allowed for your situation.  Check back later.
