The late Samuel Goldwyn once remarked that "A verbal contract ain't worth the paper it's printed on."  Until an agreement is reduced to writing, it is typically very difficult to enforce.  Meantime, consult with a family law specialist to become fully informed of your rights, obligations, options, and alternatives.
