Legal fees

I have paid my family court lawyer nearly 20,000 for services. About 10,000 of that is owed by my husband which I am told I have to pay. The FRO office is very slow, nearly a year in getting me some money. I am doing the best i can to give him money every month, after exhausting all my RRSP,s and borrowing from relatives. MY lawyer says he won,t release a copy of my final order until all the money is paid. This is a no win situation for me. Also he is withholding the paperwork for my husbands pension until  I can finish paying him. I am very upset with this situation and wonder if these actions are legal on the part of the lawyer.
