I am representing myself in a divorce case and am responding

Hi, I am representing myself in a divorce case and am responding to emails back and forth. My lawyer had prepared a settlement agreement and that document had gone back and forth for consideration. I have now run out of funds and am representing myself. I would like to ask if it is standard for there to be harsh and criticizing language in the emails from my husband's attorney to me? It makes working with them so difficult and I am questioning whether what they are saying is something I should discount or consider? With regard to accepting terms, I am going to discuss this with my previous attorney though I did not think that there was an agreement and think that she would have told me if there was.An example-"NO NO and NO. We work off my agreement. You are out of control and it stops with me.""NO WE ARE NOT WORKING IFF YOUR AGREEMENT""You can sign the agreement my office prepared or not. That is the offer no more and no less. Feel free to come back to Brooklyn as many times as it takes. Your prior two lawyers had already accepted the terms. Let me be real clear. You do not make the rules. THe decisions are made by Judge Sunshine if you do not agree to the fair agreement that was presented to you. "I have responded in a professional manner each time and will continue to do so. I just need a reality check as to the seriousness of these statements. Thank you.

Thank you so much, this helps a lot. But, someone said to me

Thank you so much, this helps a lot. But, someone said to me that in Pennsylvania the law prevents one parent to take the children out from the state if one parent opposes. So, I want to make this clear, they live in Pennsylvania and we live in Montana, so she needs to take the children over the border of Pennsylvania in order for them to visit Montana. Is your previous answer still valid, that she really can bring the children to visit, without him?
