Claiming dependents

I filed HoH without claiming my son as a dependent, but form EIC (1040) was filed with his information. Does this affect the other parent from claiming him as a dependent?

No, if your son LIVED with you in 2020, you can qualify for the Earned Income Credit and the other parent can claim him as dependent in the same tax year.

So ultimately this would prevent them from claiming a dependent and EIC correct?

They can claim the dependent and child tax credit.  The filing status and earned income credit stay with the parent the child lived with for more than 6 months out of the year.
