[Ipopt] convergence with specific constraints

Dear all

I am working on the motion generation for humanoid robots and I use 
IPOPT to solve motion planning problemcon.

I have some troubles with the convergence of the algorithm due to the 
properties of my problem.
To plan a motion, I implement constraint on the body position and also 
on the contact forces. But the contact forces have a physical meaning 
only when the body are at the contact location.

So, I would like to know if it is possible to not take into account some 
constraints (on the contact forces) only when some other constraints (on 
the body position) are satisfied ?

thank you
