Would I get allotted the EIC and CTC as the injured spouse?

 I'm the injured spouse. For the most part (11 months) I've been a sahm, I made less than $1000 this year. My husband is the provider with all income but owes on child support. We have 4 kids. With his income we would get the EIC and Child tax credit. With filing 8379, would the credits get allotted to me or do we lose everything since its his income?

The injured spouse form will get you just a wee bit of refund due to your low income... the lion share belongs to your husband so they will keep it.
