Refusal to Court Ordered Pay Maintenance

Consent order finalised 1 year ago, spousal maintenance was awarded to me, to be paid until I had been living with someone for a year, or I remarried. My partner moved in in January 15, we split in October 15, 9 months on. XH doesn't seem to believe me.

I received an email from XH saying he will cease spousal maintenance from January 16. This will leave me without enough to pay the mortgage, for which he is liable. His circumstances have not changed, nor have mine (apart from the 9 month cohabitation which is no longer, effectively I am in same situation when order was finalised by the court). Can I apply for an Attachment of Earnings? How much will this be, I cannot afford hefty solicitors bills, can I apply for court cost to be paid by him as this is being caused by him?

Also I have issues with inappropriate behaviour during Contact Time see here: www.mumsnet.com/Talk/legal_matters/2505516-what-can-I-do-about-this-unsuitable-environment-for-the-children with the children,

I was willing to give him a final chance, but now I feel if I cease contact now it looks like I'm doing it out of retaliation.

I'm at my wits end, any advice would be welcome.
