What kind of response is needed for a Divorce from Bed&Board


#1

My spouse served me with a divorce from Bed & Board civil summons and it says I need to issue a response to my spouse and the court within 30 days. So how detailed of a response do I give? Is it just one that says “I contest this” or does it have to be detailed response to every issue in the civil summons? Is it recommended that I get a lawyer to draft the response for me or is it a fairly simple thing to draft the response myself?

You need to file an Answer which admits or denies each allegation contained in the Complaint. I would suggest you meet with a lawyer to discuss the specifics of your case prior to filing an answer.
