Your recourse is to pursue contempt of court against your ex-husband for failure to comply with the terms of your divorce decree.
You will need to file with the court an Order to Show Cause to request a hearing on your contempt of court claim. Call the court clerk to schedule the hearing. Include the date/time/department of the hearing on your Order to Show Cause. Also, file with the court your declaration signed under penalty of perjury stating the facts in support of your contempt of court claim. File any additional supporting documents and other evidence. File a proof of service (court form). File the above items with the court and then mail a copy of your court-filed documents to your ex to give him notice of the hearing. The proof of service verifies the date of mailing.
Prior to filing your documents with the court, ask the court clerk if any additional documents are required to file for contempt of court because the required documents may vary from state to state.
