    My ex-wife and I have separated and agreed on a property settlement. She is delaying this process. Is it possible to force the agreed terms?

    What terms in particular? If there are provisions within the orders for enforcement then do that. If not, then it is back to court. Or at least, a letter threatening court to try to motivate her...

    What is your property settlement documented in? If it is recorded in consent orders or a binding financial agreement, you can take that to court and enforce it like a normal court order or contract respectively. If it is not documented in one of those documents or the subject of actual court orders then you may not be able to enforce it through the court system.
