You can sue the guy, because he owes you money. You sue in District Court in the city where he lives, or in the city where you entered into the agreement. His wife probably has nothing to do with it. If he owes you more than the limit of Small Claims Court, you probably should get a collection attorney to handle the claim. The lawyer will probably take 50% of the money, but getting something is a lot better than getting nothing.
