The first step is pretty clear - get a lawyer immediately. Make some calls and set up an appointment or two today, or just call the lawyer you had before. The lawyer will handle the rest.
Contact an attorney for advice and representation. If the issues are truly resolved an attorney may be able to finalize all of the issues with the other attorney. If the case is not resolved, I would definately recommend that you obtain representation for the hearing.
You really should not handle a contested divorce pro se, especially since your wife is represented. The court will not grant a continuance without a good reason, such as to give you time obtain another atty. I would do so ASAP and try to work out a payment arrangement for your fees.

I agree. You need an attorney. You never want to proceed pro se when the other side is represented. I do not practice in your jurisdiction, but if you absolutely are unable to find counsel I would call the clerk's office and ask them if they can recommend a low-income lawyer or put you in touch with the Judge's clerk and see what steps the Judge would like you to take to request the trial date be moved.
