How do I respond to show cause order?
Las Vegas, Nevada
County on line papers too confusing
You must file a response to the order to show cause along with the copy of a proof of service. The proof of service is a declaration that you mailed a copy of the response to the other spouse's attorney or to the spouse directly if she has no attorney.You should go to the county clerk's office where the OSC was filed and ask the clerk for a blank copy of the responsive papers to the OSC.You must fill out the responsive papers and respond to each and every order that they are seeking. If the spouse is requesting custody, you must indicate whether you will grant him/her custody or you want custody. If they request possession of a home than you must respond to that issue. If the spouse seeks alimony than you should deny alimony if that is your answer, etc. You than must be sure to date it and sign it. You file the original with the Court, serve a copy on the other spouse, and keep a copy for your records.I trust that you will find my answer helpful, therefore kindly click ACCEPT after you have read my answer.
