You stated if certain issues are not resolved you will not be able to close. Regardless, a judge can stay the closing pending the resolution of the outstanding issues and can award you your lawyer's fees for his willful violation of a court order. If your ex does not believe he can work certain items out due to his fear you will have him arrested for violating an order of protection you have to seek court intervention. You should not sit idly by and let your rights be violated.
You can bring an immediate Order to Show Cause for contempt of the prior Order. The Order can be brought on an emergency basis and you can ask for certain relief that will hopefully enable you to sell the home.
Contempt proceedings cannot be brought until all other remedies are exhausted. An enforcement proceeding is more appropriate and money that is realized from the sale of the premises from your ex's share of net proceeds can be used to pay what he owes you including reasonable counsel fees.
