Take back control of the situation from this lawyer. Figure out what you have in your current agreement, and what you consider non-negotiable. Figure out what is in their new offer that is different. (Call it an offer, not an agreement. It's not agreed to and may never be!)

Send back a counteroffer of your own. Keep the paragraphs from the current agreement that you are unwilling to change. Insert the paragraphs from their current offer that you are willing to accept. Present new paragraphs that you would like them to consider instead.

You are not dragging it out. You are negotiating. You'll either end up with a new agreement, or get to a point where neither of you are willing to budge any further and your ex, based on her lawyer's advice, will have to decide whether to take you to court or not.
