Ive not had personal experience with this kind of situation but you’re ex is not obliged to pay anything above child maintenance. Of course if he’s chipping in a bit extra thats great but no it doesn’t state anywhere that he must pay half of the extra curricular activities. It sounds like your partner and his ex really need to sit down and rehash their parenting plan and perhaps working with a mediator would really help the two of them to do this. I dont know what their custody agreement is so cant comment on his involvement in the activities. But again maybe mediation would help them focus on the best interest of the child rather than bickering over finances. Its always a difficult situation when exs with children clash but hopefully things will be resolved soon. You can always contact the gingerbread helpline, citizens advice or a solicitor for further more informed advice. Hope this helps and stay safe
