While I cannot comment on your specific situation, generally, when it comes to inter-spousal issues, such as duress or even blackmail when it comes to the child custody agreement, it is not likely that such situation would result in any type of criminal prosecution for the ex-spouse who might have engaged in the blackmail, but the court might take any new facts showing undue duress or blackmail related to the child custody agreement and might modify the child custody agreement, if the court finds such modification suitable under the law and in the best interest of the minor children.
