Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.
Is the document you have that says he owns you a judgment or a contract of some kind (like a property settlement agreement)?
If it is part of a JUDGMENT, then you can file a petition to hold him in contempt of court to enforce the provisions. But, if it is a property settlement agreement, you'd have file a motion for specific performance and ask the judge to grant you a judgment for the amount due....then you could try to garnish or levy execution upon him for the amounts due.
Also, you may be able to report the non-payment of the child support to the court and hold him in contempt for that separate from the other non-child support issues.
You have options, but you should consult your lawyer about the best option to proceed based on the terms of your paperwork.......
