Received an email from the school board last night that there is a confirmed covid19 case in the school.

If I had joint (50-50) custody for the first half of the year but second half of year (therefore on Dec 31) my ex-spouse has full custody. Can I claim the daycare deduction for the months when I had custody? Do I still get $8000 per child or is it prorated?
