My motion for enforcement was granted against my ex spouse, but they have not paid. What is the next step?

[dropcap type=”circle” color=”#ffffff” background=”#555555″]Q[/dropcap] In my divorce, I was to receive my car, but before our divorce was final, they totaled it and took the insurance money. I filed for enforcement of final judgement where it was ruled that she was to pay the money directly to me within 30 days. That deadline expired 07/06/13 and she has not paid me or offered any payments. Can I file for enforcement/contempt? What is the next step?
