He can't tell you anything but he can take in front of the judge who can.

Only if you allow him to do so. Talk to an attorney. Many offer a free consultation. If I were you, I'd have no contact with her about the case and certainly not with him. Find out your rights and obligations from an experienced attorney.

He can tell you whatever he wants, and you can choose to ignore him. You have to follow court orders, not orders from your wife's attorney. I agree with the other posters to get your own counsel.
