This is unfortunately what happens when a party is trying to represent themselves in these matters against a party that is represented. The court, being aware that none of these documents were provided as ordered should deny the attorney's motion to prevent future motions on this since your friend has a right to the information and to force her to comply through the court. As far as the protective order, that should only be to prohibit his release of the information to any third party, since he would be entitled to that information as a spouse seeking his share of the marital property. At this point your friend really needs to consider getting a lawyer involved to object to the motions and force the court to compel the ex to comply with the court orders.
