I'm assuming, here, that your ex is not paying what the decree says, instead of the situation where the alimony was only for a limited time and it's up.
You really don't have any options other than taking your ex back to court. I'd recommend that you have an attorney help you with this, and one place to find qualified lawyers is our website, http://attorneypages.com
