Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
Legally, if you had a signed settlement agreement and you have not complied, you are in breach of that agreement. The only way to avoid court and sanctions is to offer something to them to settle the breach of the agreement. You are going to have to negotiate with your ex to accept either more money for waiting for sale of the house or something else in exchange for them agreeing to wait for the house sale. If they refuse and you have not paid, the court has no choice legally but to enforce that agreement as written. So send a letter to your ex and attorney and tell them you want to settle this and explain your financial position and what you are waiting on and ask them what they want to resolve this amicably without litigation and see what they offer, or if you have an offer to make them consider waiting for the sale you can make that offer in the letter to them.
