Once the judge signed the order it is effective upon the filing and you could seek to enforce it immediately. If the other parties have not complied with the order within 30 days of issuance, then you need to go to court and file a motion to show cause for contempt and a motion to compel and you would be entitled to attorney's fees as well for having to file the motions.
