Your question is some what difficult to follow. It would be a conflict of interest for the attorney to represent your husband against his ex-wife, who is the attorney's employee. It would not be a conflict for the attorney to represent your husband in a divorce against you, as you have no relationship with the attorney.

I don't know if the law is the same in all states, but since my divorce was not contested, we used the same attorney and split the attorney fees. Although, the attorney made it very clear to my ex husband that since I was the one who filed for divorce and hired him, then I was the one he officially represented. So check with an attorney and see if you and your spouse can do the same. But you and he or she will have to agree on everything, or else you will need separate attorneys.
