I would always advise a client to have any terms of agreement ruled by a Court to make them enforceable

Customer: replied 11 days ago.
how can we do that ?
Expert:  Legal Eagle replied 11 days ago.

Effectively you are giving her maintenance, and can seek to have this ruled by a District Court. You can go down to your local district court and ask them to issue a summons.
