If you are in contact with that family member, set up a meeting between the four of you. Adversely you could put together your offer to settle, send it to your ex and let the family member know to review it with him.

Your lawyer is right, the family member is not a party and cannot discuss with the lawyer unless they have permission. I was not permitted to sit in a legal appointment with my husband without his specific permission right there in the office. Lawyers will not do anything that is against the privacy act which includes discussing YOUR finances with another party. With his previous lawyer your ex would have signed an agreement.
