Can opposing counsel deny the withdrawal of my attorney?

Question Details: I just fired my attorney and there is a scheduled hearing in a month. My ex's attorney will not stipulate the withdrawal. My attorney said there are 2 options to sign a substitution of counsel that states I are making an appearance as my own attorney, and that I will comply with existing deadlines and scheduled hearings or my attorney could file a motion to withdraw and show up on the scheduled hearing to argue it. Can opposing counsel deny the withdrawal of my attorney? What rights do I have to deny signing the substitution of counsel as it was drawn up?
