Thank you for your question, I shall do my best to assist you but I need some further information first.
What is your daughter doing at the moment?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

Hi Claire, she is in fulltime college doing Alevels this is her first year she has another year left

Expert:  Clare replied 4 years ago.
Then you are entirely correct he does have to continue paying maintenance and if he stops then you can apply to the court to enforce the Order.
A simple letter reminding him of the wording and that you WILL enforce the Order if necessary may be all that is required.
I hope that this is of assistance to you.
