You have your terminology messed up so it is hard to understand what you are asking.
Settlement offers are not filed with the court. Did you file a statement of position? A settlement conference statement which contains you position? What is the court date? A trial date? A settlement conference? Do you have an attorney? If you do, why don't you ask him/her? For anyone here to answer your question, it needs to be clearer and we need to know the context.

The above is general legal and business analysis. It is not "legal advise" but analysis, and different lawyers may analyse this matter differently, especially if there are additional facts not reflected in the question.

If you don't agree with the terms of a settlement offer, don't sign the settlement agreement. No one can force you to sign the agreement. As other responders to this question have stated, you're not entirely clear as to what kind of document you are talking about. Plus, it sounds like you have an attorney as you've indicated you want your ex to pay for lawyer fees. If you don't like the terms of the settlement offer you should let your attorney know. He or She will likely appreciate knowing that BEFORE you walk into the court room.
