You may approach an attorney to speed up the process. Your ex is in contempt of a court order and as such you will be able to force him to pay, or face criminal charges.

I''m in the same boat as you. It''s very frustrating. I''m pulling my hair out as the courts are very unhelpful.

If you are in Johannesburg you can also go to Tswaranang Advocacy centre, they are in braamfontein. They also assist with such issues. Good luck!

Go back to the maintenance court and refuse to leave until they act on your request. Ask to speak to the maintenance prosecuter, the magistarte, the court manager - everyone.
Claim for the arrears.
Note: you can also claim from his parents
