Yes bring your court order and go to maintenance mediation department. They will follow up.
He have to show cause why he is not paying.
The worse scenario is he might be jailed if the judge knows he have money but he don’t pay you

but what if he ‘hide’ all his money with the new love and tell judge he got no money?

He recently changed job, still working.. but just dunwan to pay.. and he is very cunning in the sense will keep cash instead of keeping in his bank account..

if he is still working dont need to to scare. let the court deal with him. dont waste time going chasing him. like wendy had said, go to family court and file yourself. no need lawyer

After divorce not enough dont want to pay maintenance. haiya. asking for trouble... i believe he better have a good explanation on why he didnt pay and paid late.... i believe can be convicted for this....
but what if he ‘hide’ all his money with the new love and tell judge he got no money?
he has to show his bank account records ( all of them ) and if he spend more than he earn.... smth is fishy no ?
