Illinois has a dependent allowance, which applies to either a dependent child or a nonworking spouse.  Your child may be claimed as a dependent, provided that five conditions are met.  Or a nonworking spouse may be claimed as a dependent provided certain conditions are met.  See this document for details.  However, one or the other must be selected.  You cannot claim both a dependent spouse and dependent children.
