Per my divorce decree I am responsible for 60% of my son's child care costs. My ex-wife pays them initially and then I reimburse her. I have sent her a couple of checks, the most recent one she received was a week ago. She has confirmed that she received them but has yet to deposit them. I've asked her if she is going to deposit them and she says yes but will not tell me when. They are beginning to stack up and in order to keep my account straight I would like her to deposit them. I've tried to think of alternative methods to pay her because she's always been difficult but she refuses to cooperate with other methods such as Chase's Quick Pay. Is there anything that can be done about this? Is there an alternate method to pay her that I may not be aware of?
If you keep careful track of your account balance it shouldn't matter how long she waits.
If that doesn't work for you, pay by money order in the future (keep copies for your records) so that you don't have to wait for her to process the checks before the money leaves your account.

You could try to setup an ACH check payment. That would go straight from your bank account to hers. A lot of online bank systems let you do that provided you have the routing number and the account number you want to send the money to.
