Assuming that the settlement agreement was incorporated to the divorce decree, it has the same effect as any court order. When someone disobeys a court order, the court may impose sanctions on him. This is called Contempt of Court. You should contact your attorney about filing a contempt action against your ex-husband so that the court will compel him to pay what is due. He may also be ordered to pay penalties for disobeying the court's order. Make sure your attorney has a copy of the original divorce decree, the settlement agreement, and all proofs of payments that you have so far.
