A: Is that agreement in your divorce stipulation? If so you can file a contempt proceeding. If it is not in your divorce stipulation you may not be entitled to anything. Talk to a lawyer.

A: Based upon what you said, you have nothing in writing that has been signed by your ex. If that is the case all you have is an empty promise. If your ex is not paying child support, you can go to court to get child support as long as the child is younger than 21. Speak to an attorney about the issues to see what can be done.
