Legal Question

Breach of Promise

I was divorced in PA in 2001. I moved to California to attend college. He is supposed to send me 300 a month for medical expenses. Up until April there was never a problem. Now when I call him to ask for the check he says he 'mailed it.' I have not received checks for April, June, and July. He said he wrote another check and sent it but I didn't get that either. Our agreement states that the one who breaches the contract pays the legal fees. Can I do this from CA? Also, his lack of payment has put me in a financial position where I was unable to pay my rent and will therefore be homeless at the end of the month since I have not found a job since graduating college. Also he lied to me prior to the divorce and said the house was worth 20,000 less than we paid for it so if I wanted he would take the house so I wouldn't be in debt. We were supposedly friends and I believed him. I now found out he was lying. My major priority at the moment is to get the money for my medical insurance which I have paid from my own money but will not have enough after September. The problem is that I am 'uninsurable' because of my diabetes and it is vital I have the money to continue paying for my policy. What legal recourse do I have?
