How can I enforce pendente lite order .

Asked over 1 year ago - Sicklerville, NJ

I had hearing on Monday, and entered a consent agreement before the court with my husband for child support and alimony. However he has yet to comply ( he is not paying the full amount or supplying the information I need to pay the bill plus commission information.- which were oart if the order the judge approved) I have an attorney and so does he but his side is unresponsive. What should I expect?
