There are hundreds of pages in every family law practice book and guide about this. The simple answer is you locate income or assets and attach it by wage garnishment or enforcement of judgment proceedings. You may also be able to use a contempt citation. A more detailed answer would take hours just to type, and is way beyond the scope of a free q&a service.

Family orders are enforceable the same as money judgments, and additionally by use of the court's contempt power.
