I claim me and my 2 kids on my W4, I might be getting married this year. If so, would me and my husband both claim the kids on that form or just one of us?

You would likely be filing married jointly so the kids would be dependents on your joint return.

If you and your future husband intend on filing a joint tax return, once you are married both of you would claim the kids on your W4.  However, if you are going to file separate returns, then you would claim the kids on your W4.
