can i claim my fiance? what about his arrears?

Hi my name is Chelsea. I have lived w my fiance for 3 years and the last 7 months he's been out of work from 2 surgeries. He has 2 children from a previous relationship and has paid 2500 into child support for 2014 but owes 3500 in arrears from being out of work. The court ordered support includes half child care expenses and one childs full premium costs for health care. I found online he can't claim the new noncustodial tax but possible the earned income tax? He made about 6k working part time the months he did work(that includes the child support accounted for). I realize child support is tax free but is there a way I could claim him as a dependent since I did support him all year? And once he pays arrears back could he claim daycare payments since he's responsible for 50% of it?

The court ordered support includes half child care expenses and one childs full premium costs for health care. I found online he can't claim the new noncustodial tax but possible the earned income tax?=====>>>>>no noncustodial parent can never claim eic; A custodial parent may use Form 8332 to release the exemption to the noncustodial parent. In that circumstance, the noncustodial parent would qualify for the dependency exemption and therefore the Child Tax Credit /addtl child tax credit that is refundable.

He made about 6k working part time the months he did work(that includes the child support accounted for). I realize child support is tax free but is there a way I could claim him as a dependent since I did support him all year? ==>>>>>>>no unless his gross income was $3950 or more in 2014 andlived with you for the entire year.

And once he pays arrears back could he claim daycare payments since he's responsible for 50% of it?====>>>>>he can claim this for the amounts that each of them paid for child care. So if he each paid for 50% of it, he can each claim your 50% no matter who is claiming the child as a dependent.
