A settlement is an enforceable contract. If you do not comply, you can be sued for a court order forcing you to comply and/or for monetary compensation, such as for any costs or losses (including lawyer's fees) the other side (your spouse) suffered or incurred due to your noncompliance.

Although AttorneyPages.com has verified the attorney was admitted to practice law in at least one jurisdiction, he or she may not be authorized to practice law in the jurisdiction referred to in the question, nor is he or she necessarily experienced in the area of the law involved.
