You should discuss this with your lawyer who has far more information about what is going on than you have posted here.

If defendant makes 85% of the income and is churning litigation through multiple attorneys, you should make an application for attorney's fees.

Have your attorney make an application for counsel fees, due to his protracting the proceedings and because he makes 85% more income then you. As for the court orders that have not been dealt with, I assume that you mean he is violating them. If that is accurate, then ask your attorney to file a motion seeking to find him in violation. Perhaps you should get more aggressive in the litigation.
