Do you mean not to introduce other people they are dating to their children?
Also, this was totally an oral agreement and not in a court order?
Unfortunately, oral agreements are not enforceable in court in the same manner that they would be enforceable if it were in the order. You could still sue for a breach of contract but likely the family court won't hear that type of allegation and, in addition, there aren't any damages due to this so it won't be worth pursuing in another court.
What you could do is file a Motion to Modify and ask the court to make the oral agreement a part of the order and at that point it would be enforceable by the court through a Motion for Contempt.
If your question has been answered then I'd offer my best wishes to you and ask that you please not forget to leave a Positive Rating so I receive credit for my work.
