Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking.
Your attorney can file a motion for a status hearing/conference with the judge, which would force the other attorney to come to court and explain to the judge what the delay is. Your other option is your attorney can file a motion to set the matter for trial and force the case before the court. However, other than these two things, if you and your attorney are trying to settle this without litigation your attorney is right they have to just keep trying to get her attorney so they can settle this matter. It may be you will just have to pay your attorney more for litigation to demand a hearing date be set to change the divorce from uncontested to contested and go to trial, but many times getting a status conference before the judge will work because the judge will strongly encourage settlement if there are not any real issues to fight over.
