Can I ask two more questions about the stimulus package?

1) Surviving Spouse -- same rebate situation as MFJ?

2) When divorced parents take turns claiming the kids as dependents, would they each end up with the full $300 per kid? The one who claims the kids on the 2007 return would get the money this summer, and the one who claims them in 2008 would get the credit on the 2008 return? Or will there be some sort of cross-checking to prevent this from happening?
