Well, "abated" could mean a couple of things...in my opinion the issue of attorney's fees were put on hold until the judge makes her ruling. At that point she "may" award attorney's fees to your husband. As others have said, your husband is responsible for paying for his attorney.
I would not say that your attorney fees are abated, the reset was likely due to time or a procedural error in the form of the pleadings. You must give 10 days notice for an enforcement hearing. The term "abate" in your fact pattern does not make sense. Judge likely judge reset and said everything would be taken up at the reset date.
You are responsible for paying your own attorney, regardless of what happens in Court. If you are awarded attorney fees, then your husband's ex will have to reimburse you.
If your attorney said that you misunderstood, that is likely what occurred. Since I was not in the Courtroom, I really can't question that.
This information is not legal advice and does not form an attorney-client relationship.
It sounds like when the judge reset the trial, she wanted to make it clear that your attorney could still argue for attorney's fees to be awarded. That doesn't mean that you don't have to pay your attorney.
