Ask your lawyer to take out an Order on the endorsement made at the case conference. Rely on this for a contempt motion.

The opposing lawyer may not be responding because:
- No retainer funds;
- No instructions (client AWOL);
- No disclosure from client yet, hoping to provide it and move on;
- Lawyer is sick, on vacation, etc; or
- none of the above.

The motivating factor in a family law case is need. What will you do with the disclosure when you have it? Are you hoping to rely on it to obtain child support or spousal support? If yes, push to get it. If you are happy with the status quo - for example, if you aren't paying support but expect to do so someday - then there is no need to incur costs for no gain.
