there are 2 aspects to be considered here.
One, the legal aspect where the law states that if someone must pay maintenance, so should they! Unfortunately many people are failed by the legal system. You can fight it but at a high cost, both financially and emotionally.
Number two is to draw an "emotional" line that you are moving on without any further claims and figure it out like many single parent do to be the sole provider for your child.
It is your choice, but fighting someone who has decided to not comply with the law is like being hostage to your own divorce.
As for the physical threats he has made, you can seek an interdict against him. These threats should never be taken lightly and it is your right to protect yourself and your child from any harm. I would urge you to go to the police with these threats.
You can contact me for a legal referral should you want to pursue the legal side.
