I have been divorced for almost a year. in that time, my ex has been in contempt 8 times for failure to pay court ordered support (mandated by judge's ruling as our case was tried in court).
so far, every time i have filed motion of contempt, and at the 11th hour he pays owed monies but i am left with the legal bills incurred.
this has been his tactic while waiting for court date on his request to modify support amount.
other than constantly having to file motions of contempt, which has now become unaffordable, how can i get final judgment to be enforced?

You should be able to have your ex's wages garnished for the support payments. Consult with local counsel about how to get that done.
