You can hire new counsel if you don't have confidence in this lawyer's work any more. Your new lawyer can respond to your ex wife's motion that the six month period was discussed in open court, you paid twice as long as you said you would, and you are not in contempt of the order but you are done paying the pet insurance. Be prepared with bank statements or other proof of your payments.
