Thank you for your question. I am happy to assist you.
A court order is required to be followed until it is modified. Your ex should be paying support during the modification process.
Generally speaking, when someone violates the court orders they are considered to be in contempt of court. To enforce your rights you will need to file a motion for contempt (may also be called an motion to show cause). In that motion you indicate what the orders are and how he has violated them.
In your situation, you would tell the court that a spousal support order was issued and has not been paid. The court would then typically issue a garnishment.
I hope that the information which I provided was helpful to you.
