If my ex wife doesn't follow to decree of divorce?

Englewood, CO |

We have settled a case a few months ago and one of the settlement was I supposed to listed as a father on the birth certificate and my ex wife supposed to give me copy of the birth certificate and social security card of the child. I made a few attempt to get those from her but she doesn't cooperate with me so What can I do? I am the biological father.
