The fact that he owes retroactive CS shouldn't stop the divorce from proceeding. Having CS ordered and having CS actually paid are two different things handled by two different bureaucracies. The court will make an order for CS as part of your divorce. If he isn't paying it, you have the opportunity to engage another bureaucracy (FRO in Ontario, MEP in Alberta, other names in other places ...) to collect on the amount owing. You can decide whether you really want to push the collection process or whether you want to just leave it alone. You can still get divorced.

You also don't need to justify why you want to get divorced or what role the kids' father has played (or not played) over the past years. They're teenagers now so it's all water under the bridge.
