Hello again, Joan.
What would typically need to be filed in this situation is a motion to compel your husband to sign the document necessary to receive the benefits the court has granted you. It does not appear there is any basis for them to claim attorney's fees (unless that is stated in the decree) before signing the documents and it does appear they are engaging in stall tactics.
Here is a link that provides instructions on how to file a motion to compel:
Here is a link that provides a sample of the body of such a motion:
A motion for order to show cause may also be filed, requesting that your ex be held in contempt for not complying with the court's order. Here is a link that provides a sample order to show cause:
Since you have no experience drafting or filing such documents, it would be best to contact legal aid or even an experienced paralegal to asist you in drafting and filing these documents, which should result in the benefits being paid to you.
I hope this helps clarify the situation for you.
