After separation papers are signed

Dear kkascm3:

Greetings. Your right is to file a claim for breach of contract against him in order to have him fulfill his obligations under the separation agreement. Hopefully you had the agreement drafted by an attorney and an attorney fee provision is included. Thank you.

My husband and I separated and signed separation papers in October of 2004. I have carried out my part of the deal, but my husband has yet to pay me any of the money he had agreed to in the papers. We had agreed that he would pay me a little every month until he had paid in full the settlement of me leaving the home. He is the one who had an affair and I have done nothing spiteful to him at all. What are my rights? Do I have the right to have a judge overturn this document if he is not going to fullfill his part of the agreement or am I pretty much in a no-win situation since the papers have already been signed? Thank You, Kathleen
