Hi, thank you for your question. Just a bit more information required to fully assist you:
-Does the order specify who is to deal with handover?
-Were you married to your ex-partner?
-Do you have evidence that he is working and claiming income support?
How old is your daughter?
Thanks for confirming.
Firstly, in relation to child maintenance as he is on income support and you have no evidence that he is working or earning another income legally he is not liable to pay child maintenance.
Regarding the handover, I would suggest that you formally write to him and inform him that his actions are unacceptable and for you to have a think about how else this could be facilitated to avoid any confrontations - for example standing back and allowing your daughter to knock on the door and for you to watch and ensure that she goes in? That way you do not have to talk to him. In the event that his behaviour continues you can consider applying to court for a non-molestation order using form FL401 to your local family court - this is an injunction preventing him doing certain things such as verbally abusing you and breaching this will be a criminal offence and he would be liable for arrest.
