Submitting Response to Divorce summons
      #302026 - 10/09/07 02:08 PM

I live in the City of Dearborn,

My husband recently served me a divorce summons. We have been seperated for about 5 years now, we have a 6 year old son. I'm also guilty of procrastination. I should have been pro active about completing this divorce before. I'm now in a time when I can't really (nor any other time just worse now) afford a divorce.

Right now all I have to do is submit the response to his summons at court (with in 21 days) and then I can see what I have to do about getting a lawyer. I do contest his proposal, because it is some what unfair. I understand if it was uncontested it would be much easier.

Quesion: how easy is it to submit a response and how detailed does it have be? IS it as easy as writing on a piece of paper that I don't aggree with the proposal. I have been to the court and they don't have any forms or anything to return. There words were that "I had to submit a response in my own words and put it in the black box". It sounds like it is as simple as typing a response on a sheet of paper and having it filed???

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks much.

You need to submit a detailed response requesting the relief you are seeking . Beg , borrow or steal enough for a retainer , you can always ask that your spouse pay your legal fees .

Careful. We don't want to learn from this.
