No, the motion to deny the continuance won't be accepted. You have the LEGAL right to have an attorney. And any decision or ruling made in the abscence of an attorney representing you when you made it clear that you wanted an attorney to represent, you just needed more time to obtain one.
In the meantime, go into research mode. Google how to type up a contempt motion (which you need for your stbx's blatent disregard of the court order), go to court for a day (you will need to get a babysitter for this) and sit in on several family court hearings (criminal ones aren't going to help you learn what you need to about the family court). This way, you will get an idea of what is expected and how to handle yourself.
I would also find out where to report your attorney for her unethical behavior. She sounds like a father's rights attorney, which is fine as long as you don't let it interfere with representing your female clients. Which she is.
