    I definitely agree with Mr. Kallus. There are certain steps that should have been taken since you are an active duty military member. Consult with a matrimonial attorney in Albany, or see if the VA/your branch of the military has an attorney who is experienced with divorces that can assist you.

    It is in your best interest to request that the courts order the other party to obey by the terms of your JOD/settlement. Speak with the attorney who represented you during your divorce, or seek new counsel.

    If you are not happy with your current representation, you have the right to retain someone else. You should schedule a time to meet with your lawyer in his office to address the lack of communication and his apparent disinterest in your case. Tell him that you need to see action being taken, or else you will be forced to hire a different lawyer. In the meantime, perhaps consider consulting with other matrimonial attorneys who are more aggressive.
