There are several ways to do this. However, you do not put a lien against your ex husband, you lien his property. You can also get to his wages, real estate and bank account(s).

I suggest that you consult with an experienced family law lawyer. Experience is not expensive, it's priceless!

You will find some valuable information on various family law issues at my web site.

Good luck to you!

Dear Inquirer:

There likely are deadlines and time-limits associated with your case; you should contact an attorney of your choice for legal advice specific to your personal situation, at once.

The site contains quite a bit of general information about California Family Law, Tenants' Rights, and Juvenile Dependencies, as well as information about me (education, experience, et cetera) and my office (location, hours, fees, policies).


If by "divorce agreement" you mean a judgment, you can collect just like any other judgment (by wage assignment, etc).

Thanks for sharing your interesting inquiry with us on LawGuru, and good luck with your case.
