I have been divorce for almost two years and the agreement was that we sell the house, I get the house refinance in my name or she does the same. Also that no man is to move in the house or occupy the house. Instead my Ex-Wife wouldn't let me sell the house, she wouldn't refinance when she was told by the Bank that finance the house that she could and then she moved in another man while my son is still living there. She thinks that because she has Money that she can do anything that she can.
Country relating to Question: United States
Before all of this I told her by a certain time that I wouldn't be able to keep paying her for the house that I wasn't living in because I had opportunity to rent a place. But she still wouldn't let me put the house up for sale. So I did what any man would have done I stop pay my half of the morgage because I can't afford to pay for another man to live in my house that I put blood sweat and tears in to.

Can she break our agreement and move some other man in my house? Is it leagal for her to not let me sell the house and can she ask for child support if we have Joint Custody and I have him for the most part all the time
Neither party has the legal ability to unilaterally change the agreement or to simply decide to ignore the agreement. However, it is incumbent upon you to hold her to the agreement. If you believe she has done something contrary to the agreement, then you might consider filing a motion for contempt and enforcement.
The easiest way to pursue a motion for contempt and enforcement would be to retain an attorney. If an attorney assisted you on the original divorce, you might consider retaining that attorney again. And, of course, you could also hire a different attorney.
If you wanted to pursue the matter on your own, you could check with your local clerk of court for a template motion, most will have such documents for relatively straight-forward issues such as this. Simply fill out the motion, file it with the clerk, send a copy to your former wife and set the motion for a hearing.
Please let me know if anything requires clarification.
