Assuming you have a well-drafted order, you could enforce it by filing a motion for contempt. You do have the right to designate a competent adult to handle exchanges on your behalf. Of course if your ex is going to prison you could seek primary custody of your daughter also. Now it's up to you to do something about it....
I agree with most of what others have said....you don't need to convince her of anything, just file, serve her and thereby put the pressure on her to respond to your lawsuit....Texas is a no-fault state so you can get a divorce whether she wants it or not....physical separation doesn't change the fact that everything acquired during your marriage through date of divorce is community property subject to a just and right division....your marriage is over, time for you to take action.
