    My ex husband and I divorced in 2017 and part of the divorce agreement was that he would pay half of our children’s (we have 2) School clothes, after school clubs etc, and to begin with as soon as I showed him a receipt he would pay up.

    Since April this year however he is saying he can’t afford it & has only given me £20 a month towards what he owes yet he is constantly visiting his mum who lives in Torquay, we are in Wiltshire, is going away to Butlins for New Year & lives beyond his means as he has the full sky package for example.

    He now owes me nearly £200.  I have asked him how he thinks I can afford it anymore than him but get no response.

    The divorce was not amicable and he is still very bitter about it & about me moving on with my life.

    Any advice would be greatfully received.

    Yes, he could but he hasn’t.

    I disagree with you.  It is my concern when he is not providing for his children, as he said he would.

    How am I supposed to tell him up front when I don’t know until the last term of the year has finished or the children decide they want to try out a school club and the school wants payment straight away or there is a school trip that needs paying or swimming lessons.

    He will only ever pay on receipt of an invoice anyway, which I have no problem with, but until he/if he does go for a variation he should stand by what he has agreed to.

    Everything else is not an issue.
