Anyway...to the point of the OP. Talk to a lawyer. The Canadian laws around child support and confusing and weird. Make sure you know exactly what's required, and talk to the lawyer about the food and diapers aspect of it. I had a friend who only brought his ex food and diapers, before he finally got custody of the kids, because he knew she was blowing the money he brought over on heroin. I don't know of anybody here who's had to repay old child support if it was paid directly to the mom - as long as he could prove that he'd paid it.
