Even without hiring a lawyer you could have appeared as a party in person before the court.

Now since you do not want to continue with your lawyer anymore, you can very well inform the court that you would like to contest the case by yourself as party in person.

In the next date of hearing, you both the parties can appear before the court without informing the lawyer and express this fact and proceed with your divorce case as planned.
