Father paying for the maintenance of his daughter after divorce

Q: After divorce, the father pays the mother money every month for the maintenance of their daughter. The daughter stays with her mother. Is it the father’s responsibility to do all the grocery shopping for the mother and daughter?

A: After the iddat he is only responsible for his child, and giving the cash is sufficient. The cash will include all the essentials and the needs of the child.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
