how do you check if CB is being claimed?
Hi dads,

I have a quick question - how does one go about checking if mother has registered to claim CB for a child?

I ask because 1 year ago, she was asking me to register the kid for child benefit. I ignored because I knew that post-divorce, she would claim it for herself. Our other kid is registered, and she claims the CB. 

She couldn't register, as she is not from the UK.

Thanks in advance.
she wont'e be able to claim unless she is a 'permanent resident' (ILR holder) at the least if not citizen.

I don't believe there is anyway you could find out yourself...but you could try calling/emailing child benefit within HMRC and ask if CB is claimed for your child. Don't ask who is claiming though, as HMRC won't divulge details of other person.
