is there any way to incorporate a non-linear constraints when you are using

Of course. When you write down the likelihood function, feel free to substitute any nonlinear constraints you wish into the log- likelihood. Estimate the original model, estimate the one with constraints, and compare the two with a LRT (lrtest). The number of degrees of freedom should correspond to the reduction in length in the parameter vector.
