Hi, I'm Lea and I have reviewed your query.
Are you asking about maintenance for you or for the child?
Please bear in mind this is an email service and not a live chat so responses may not be instantaneous. I am not available for calls, but in all cases it is very likely you can be helped online.
He should be paying child maintenance now.
If you and he cannot agree an amount between the two of you, then you will need to apply to the child maintenance service (CMS) for assistance. I would suggest contacting them immediately however, as they do not backdate payments, they assess only from the date you contact them going forward.
You will be able to discuss other marital finances during the divorce procedure if either one of you makes an application for a financial settlement.
You can contact the CMS here: https://childmaintenanceservice.direct.gov.uk/onlinerevive/public/contact-us-client
Can I clarify anything for you?
You're very welcome.
All the best.
