The short answer is the ability to withdraw is subject to approval by the court. What isn't clear by your question is why it should matter to you. The court deadlines would apply regardless, except to say that any new attorney could request, and likely receive, an extension if there are any court deadlines coming up in the near future.
Mr. Grossman nailed it. The lawyer can file the motion any time. The court has to grant it (or deny it). Appeals can be very challenging and if you are not represented you should strongly consider retaining appellate counsel.
There is no substitute for the professional advice of an attorney who knows your case and represents you. My post is not, and may not be relied on as, legal advice and does not create an attorney-client relationship. Best wishes for a just and expeditious resolution.
You simply cant t control what opposing counsel does in that regard.

A lawyer can certainly file the motion seeking court permission to withdraw at any time....and remember it does take court permission and the client can oppose.
