Your ex is allowed to put in a CMs claim from the day you split. The CAO will decide who has what access, dependant on what is in the best interests of the children, things like who can do school run routine etc Then the outstanding maintenance is calculated from the day of the claim.
The distance only matters if it is a very long way, then travel costs are taken into account when maintenance is calculated.
