In regard to your request on the maintenance issue.
You will be entitled to claim the arrear maintenance and issue a warrant in respect thereof for his arrest and for payment of the arrears also if he does earn an income apply for a garnishee order against his salary. It is a problem if he is unemployed as this might be a valid defence on his part. However, this need to be proven and he will be obliged to disclose all his financial affairs during the maintenance proceedings, bank statements etc. The oldest defence in any maintenance matter is always the inability to pay on the part of the father.
