Legal Question in Family Law in Illinois

Blatant delay tactics by petitioner, un-ethical practice by her attorney

Briefly, a friend is in the midst of a nasty divorce. The petitioner (wife) & her attorney keep using delay tactics, ie: bringing up old issues that have been dealt with, accusations of impropriety on his part as far as following a temporary court order from june, returning propety, no proof of payment of debt, etc. When in fact it is the petitioner who has not followed the court order from june, has not made monthly payments as court ordered, has not returned personal property as ordered in june, has consistantly and repeatedly lied about Respondant's (husband) actions, mis represented respondants' true salary so she could receive maintenance. Has numerous unpaid debts yet claims there is no marital debt. Petitioner's attorney has been given every piece of discovery material requested yet accuses of not receiving any. Petitioner has turned over partial discovery, has lied throughout discovery process, in court hearings, in a deposition. How does one end the nonsense, and hold the Petitioner and her attorney accountable for their lies and questionable ethics?
