Can a lawyer file orders without client approving?

Technically, no. Only Judges file orders. Most likely you are referring to Motions which seek an order from the court. Presumably the lawyer has you permission to represent you, and therefore is authorized to file papers on your behalf. Good practice would require to have client approval on anything filed with the court.
