Good evening. I'll be assisting you with your question.
First, regarding the payment issue, unless he violates the court's order, the judge is very unlikely to require payment to probation. Essentially, the 10 days is a grace period. Like many people, he's using the entire grace period. It may be frustrating and unfair, but unless he's late, you can't force payment through probation.
That said, there isn't anything stopping you from asking the judge about it, but in reality, it's unlikely to happen.
Regarding the extracurricular activities, as long as you've made reasonable efforts to inform him, and he's just chosen to ignore you, he's still liable for paying his half.
In other words, he can't circumvent the order simply by not replying.
On top of that, the order states that he can't reasonably withhold consent. So, assuming the activities are reasonable, he can't withhold consent anyway.
Ok Thank you very much. He paid on the first of every month before the judgement. With back to school clothing and school supplies it really stinks that he is doing this but not surprising. The activity is voice lessons for my daughter who is 15 and very much into theater arts and plans on trying to make a career in this field. There are no other activites for either of my children and this sole activity is actually to solidify her position and her college/career path. I very much appreciate your assistance.
Glad to help!
