Do you know if there is a way to have this changed? It is already made a final order.
If it is in a reasonable period of time, and everyone agrees, you can change the order. If it is not in a reasonable period of time, but everyone agrees, you can do so by a motion to vary.

If there is no agreement, but spousal support is in play, look at the DivorceMate SSAG tables. They will indicate who gets the benefits for the kids. If you are paying under the assumption you will split the benefits, but this is not happening in reality, you can shake the material change in circumstances stick.

If there is no spousal support (or the amount of SS assumes recipient has all tax benefits for kids), then you are probably SOL if your ex decides she wants all of the benefits.
