Your lawyer is advising you rightly, the same needs to be brought before the court. However you don't have to wait for 3 months, your advocate can move an application and bring the facts on record. Further in application he can also cite the reason for urgency.

you can file the execution proceedings in the same court and take the warrant against him,the court will first issue first notice you have to serve it if he does not appear ,take warrant of arrest ,you have to file the execution if the amount of maintenance is pending since 2 or 3 months ,for month pending the court will not entertain the petition.Take short date of the petition before the next date he will start depositing the maintenance.If he is working in government service you can attach the salary with your amount of maintenance.
