Misuse of child support funds

My husband pays over $1000 in child support to his ex-wife for his two children, ages 9 and 11.These children wear thrift store clothes & shoes.We occassionally pay for field trips,school lunches,school supplies,etc. His ex-wife (f/t hair dresser) & new husband who does odd jobs for a living,in the last year,have purchased a new home,repainted that new home, purchased a new car and new truck, appliances and computer. She has even purchased a tanning bed. The children are old enough to know they don't have what they should, especially the oldest,and when they ask for things, she constantly tells them she has no money.The children argue with her about having ''new'' clothes or shoes and her husband punishes them for asking. Is there any way to hold her accountable for what she is spending the support money on? Without the support, she could not afford all the luxuries she and her new husband now have. Please help!
