I hear your frustration, and rightfully so, however one has to look at the initial divorce agreement. I would guess that once the child is an adult, there is no maintenance to be paid anymore. Your fiance and yourself should relook what was legally agreed upon and amend the current arrangements.
It is hard to believe how one lives of R 3000 these days. Surely she must have other resources. Since the daughter is now 18 and if you both wish/agree to still help the daughter out, the money could be paid to the daughter and not to the mother anymore.
Any further legalities should be addressed with a legal person who could have a look a the original divorce agreement.
I hope this helps.
