If your divorce was final on or before Dec 31 2017, then you can't file joint. It doesn't matter what agreement you have, as the IRS does not and will not recognize it. Your only filing options are single, or if you have kids the one with custody under the IRS rules can file Head of Household.

You can't make a legal agreement to do something illegal.

Right. Didn't your lawyer tell you this?
