Dear Dr. Tam Anh Le,

How about inserting your ligation product into a vector first ?
You only need a small scale ligation to start with.
You can then release as much as you need by restriction digestion of
MaxiPreps, and then gel extract your fragment.
Once your ligation product is in a vector, you can even easily do
sequencing to check if your ligation was alright.

Good Luck !

Hope this is useful info.   :-)
