You copy the heading as it appears in the Petition for Divorce. Then, instead of Complaint or Petition, you title your document "Answer."
Then you follow the complaint and number each answer to correspond with the numbers in the complaint. For each answer, you answer "admit," "deny," "insufficient information to admit or deny." After that, if you have any defenses to the allegations such as improper service or improper venue you put them in a section at the end titled "Affirmative Defenses." If not, then you sign your answer and put in your contact information and have it notarized. Then you add in a section titled "Certificate of Service" and put in the date and person you sent a copy to, usually the petitioner's attorney if they have one or if not the petitioner. Sign that, file it with the clerk's office and get a stamped copy from the clerk and mail a copy to the other party.
