This depends upon where you are at in the process:
If you have not filed and RJI, do so,
but if you have signed all papers on your end and no papers were filed by your husband, you may want to see he is not IN DEFAULT for answer.
If he is, you may be able to move forward without his approval, but would still need the RJI filed.
You can bring this to the attention of the court to enforce the terms of your agreement. It does sound like things are possibly in litigation already. If so, you can ask for such medical records as part of discovery.
Yes, the forms could be different, but this may be due to WHO is making the allegations.

Whether a public attorney is "good enough" is your decision. I believe that most are fantastic, but limited due to a large amount of clients but little funding or time.
Agreed. The court will always act in the best interests of your children unless you can prove a substantial and unexpected change in your financial circumstances. Voluntary retirement is a choice, so the court will not want to reduce your child support for that reason.
OK, much more information needed here, because there are many factors considered in determining spousal maintenance awards:
(1) the income and property of the respective parties including marital property distributed pursuant to subdivision five of this part;
(2) the length of the marriage;
(3) the age and health of both parties;
(4) the present and future earning capacity of both parties;
