Harris county keeps the cases confidential for 30 days. You would not be able to find it online. The attorney sent you the documents without the case number, because when you efile it, the case number does not issue for several days. It does not sound like the attorney has done anything wrong. Perhaps they promised you documents faster than you are going to receive them, but you cannot go to court until 60 days have passed based on the prove up statute.
Either trust this firm or hire a new lawyer. You can get unearned fees back.

I agree with Mr. Busby. Because the you live in Harris County, the divorce will not appear online until the earlier of (1) the expiraion of 30 days or (2) the Respondent files an answer. And, the earliest date a divorce can be granted is 60 days after filing.
If you are concerned, then schedule an appointment to meet with the lawyer. Afterwards, if you are still concerned, hire a new lawyer.
