I'm sorry to hear this;
the property division aspect of the decree is always valid- so if the marital property was just sold and the decree stated one party is entitled to a percentage, that needs to be complied with. One can bring a motion to compel payment per the divorce decree. If they continue to fail to do so, they can be held in contempt; if the house is still in the escrow process, one can submit the decree to the title company.
As for the child support, unforunately the court will not award retroactive child support modifications;they can only order a request retrocative back to the date the original request (the request for modification ) was filed.
From a Laches perspective, if one is entitled to a percentage of the house upon the sale, it is important to make a request right away so that the court will allow recovery- if a party unduly delays, the court can deny the claim based on a legal doctrine called "laches".
