Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I will try my level best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can.
If the parties came to a private agreement and the judge approved it and entered it into the record, then it becomes a binding order that either party can then enforce.
If one party is violating the agreement, then the other can file a motion for contempt of court with the judge who approved the order to force the violating party to appear and explain why they are violating an agreement that they voluntarily entered into and the judge approved and made an order in the case. The judge can then take actions from a verbal admonition to fines, to actually holding the person in contempt and imposing up to 6 months in jail for civil contempt. But realistically jailtime is not going to happen unless the person willfully violates again after being ordered by the judge to comply with the order.
You are very welcome. Glad to help any time..
