Hello, my name is Marcus.
You have 2 options.
You can either apply to the Child Maintenance Service for child support and they may access based on any income received from the capital he has - although that might not be alot.
Alternatively you can apply under Schedule one of the Children Act for any capital needs such a car for yourself, laptop and or furniture for your son - or any other capital need your son may have.
How old is your son and how much did father receive.
Technically any interest from the £125k would be income but as I say it would not amount to much in terms of child support.
That therefore leaves a claim for your sons capital needs under the Children Act.
Below is a link for an article.
Ignore reference re child support but it refers to a lump sum for capital needs.
That is where your claim will be.
You are most welcome.
