Can my ex-wife (of 15 years) now claim for money for herself?

Customer Question

Can my ex-wife (of 15 years) now claim for money for herself? We have 2 children for whom I have always paid over and beyond. One child is 16 and the other 19. The 19 year old is at Uni and I pay him direct his share of what I used to pay his Mum.
Now my ex-wife is seeking legal advice on claiming extra money because she can't manage on her Teacher's wage. I just think it is too unfair
