Something that you may or may not be aware of is that often lawyers have private conversations between themselves to discuss "how much is in the file" - how much they can make off of you and your ex. This is commonplace.

We all want to think our lawyers are fantastic and looking out for our best interests but it is very easy to forget that lawyers are business people.... their loyalty is to billable hours.

Your ex will likely tell you that she owes money to the lawyer and lawyer will not proceed until she pays up. She already had her lawyer try to get some money out of you for the lawyer's fees. This jumped out at me as that is not a common request to put in writing.
