-Could you explain your situation a little more?Does he pay child support directly or through a court order?
Are payments made through the bureau of support?
Is someone challenging the amount he paid?
DearCustomer- If he is paying his child support through the court then I can't see why he would need receipts to prove what he paid. Child support is based on the respective incomes of the parties so if there has been a change in the incomes of either party then a modification of child support would be ordered by the court. Anything your husband purchased for the child outside of child support will be considered as a gift and would not be credited for child support or in the determination thereof. What the mother spends the money on is also not something your husband can control or get receipts for etc. If he believes the child is not being properly cared for he can file a motion for a change of custody based on the best interests of the child.
