Customer Question

Hello,We have separated with my ex wife in the end of 2014. I have a standard court decision on child visitation. I see my son every 2nd weekend and also additional times on school holidays. My son`s primary home is with his mother. I pay Child maintenance every month. I obviously also buy some clothes and other things for him when he is with me.Recently my ex started trying to make me to give her more money and to pay for things (including school dinners etc).My question is:
Can she actually do that by law? Do I have to pay extra (school dinners, clothes etc.)? Or is it all suppose to be included in ChilD Maintenance?Kind regards,
