My wife and son are oversees and not resident in Canada nor Canadian citizens. Can I claim them as wife and child dependent?
My wife lives overseas along with our son who is adopted also overseas. Both remain foreign nationals. I support them and we live as a family as much as possible under the circumstances. I also work overseas most of the time.
I have not tried to claim them in past years because of lack of supporting documentation.
It will make a substantial difference on my tax payable if I can claim them this year. If I go ahead an claim them what can I expect from revenue Canada ?
