Spousal Credit Non Resident and Resident

Hi I have 2 Clients, different situations.

1. Client got married last year, June 8, 2018.

Client - Permanent Resident

Spouse - Non Reisdent

I updated the Marital Status of the Resident. Included the date 06-08

I entered Spouse's information (I overridden the datas) 

*Foreign Address

*Non-Resident

*Spouse's net income is zero. Client is currently supporting and sending money. I saw the receipts and told him to keep it as CRA may asks for the receipts.

Now, S1 and SK428, has claimed the full spousal amount. 

Question: Shouldnt that be prorated?

2. Client got married last year, January 13, 2018

I have updated everything

Husband arrived in Canada November 14, 2018 *doesnt work yet*

Now, same thing. Full spousal amount was claimed for both S1 and SK428. Should I do something with that? Calculate proration myself? or just leave it?

Thanks in advance Experts! :)

People come to ProFile for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
