As an NRP and as a man, your partner is in a particularly difficult position. Entering the court arena on contact is a nightmare for him: it''ll take years if his ex decides to be difficult and he will lose.
Therefore, sadly, your best bet is to cut maintenance altogether and then bargain with her.
She will scream blue murder, but just ignore it.
If finances go to court you will have to fill in form E which has a section asking if any other litigation is going on, so the court is very familiar with financial disputes causing contact problems. The courts priority will be to sort out the whole mess without punishing either of you rather.
