I was married and divorced in Mexico and have 2 children that were born in US, i am giving child support in Mexico

Would i get in any kind of trouble since i know my kids have medic care and they are going to a public school, I know they have free lunch, I suspect my ex wife ask for all this as if she is a single mom and as if she is not receiving child support. Would I get in any kind of trouble? I don't know where to go or how can i prove that I am giving child support. Kids are living in the US with my ex wife's parents without my approval, we have shared custody.
