Even though you have been through the legal documents and agreements dozens of times by yourself and with your attorneys, it is still possible that your former spouse will refuse to comply with the court orders.

If Your Spouse Fails to Comply With a Court Order
Contempt can be applied to any order in your case, including those requiring the submission of particular records or goods, land separation, child custody, child support, alimony, payment of household expenses, health benefits, or life insurance, and home ownership.
If your partner disobeys a court order, your client will file a motion with the court calling for them to be held in contempt.
