Sadly, I think unless you are prepared to question your x2b's care of the children and involve either the courts or other agencies in this, then you must bite your tongue and accept that is the way it is.
I am not trying to offend you, I just think sometimes we can lose sight of what it is we are actually fighting for.
firstly to get DLA and carers allowance all you have to do is say the child needs more than average supervision than children his age.. This does not mean that they are "severely disabled" as some Ex's claim. It's sad really as there are children out there who would benefit from the extra money and don't get it!
(I know people who claim these benefits and there is nothing much wrong with the children!)
Secondly money aside if you feel that your children are not being cared for then you must do something whether or not she will loose DLA. If her alcohol and prescription drug problem is such that it is over ruling day to day care of your kids then something needs to be done.
Personally after reading your posts I would seriously consider proper legal advice! If you are not working you should be entitled to legal aid
You need to
1. Get a decree absolute.
2. Finalize the financial arrangements try mediation before full court proceedings.
3. Have proper contact orders in place for the children.
Try to rise above the emotional fog and reach for the blue sky
