Question posted in the Family Law category relating to Gauteng

My name is Lesego, I've just divorced in March, I have 3 kids whom I was given primary residence of. I then bought a new house around 3 rivers for R795 000, I put all the 3 kids on my medical aid, I'm working as an admin clerk at department of education earning R11400 after deductions while my Ex husband is earning more than R60K after deductions. Yesterday maintenance case was finalized and he was only ordered to give me R3200 for all the kids. I currently pay the nanny R3000 since the last child is 9 months, pay for water and electricity, I buy groceries and clothes while he only pays for school fees which is only R1600 for the 2kids. I feel justise was not served and would like to be advised what I can do
