can I ask the opposing attorney to provide me proof of these false accusation or should I ignore her request to go back to mediation. I feel I'm being harassed and want it stopped

More information is needed regarding the nature of these allegations and the manor in which they have been raised. If your former husband has filed a supplemental petition, you need to file a response within 20 days of service. You may request proof of these allegations through the discovery process if a supplemental petition has been filed, reopening the case.
You need to hire a lawyer to sift through this situation for you. If you need to seek the assistance of the court and you don't have funds, the court can order the other party to pay under appropriate circumstances. Don't refrain from seeing a lawyer just on money because that can be worked out. Just think, if you nip this problem in the bud you will have obtained your money's worth.
