Thanks for your question and good evening.
If he was the petitioner here--he filed for divorce he should need to file a counterclaim.You would respond here with an answer to his petition.If he is self representing himself here he may not know what he should be filing and filed twice.
Can you give me more information here.It doesn't add up here what he has filed..
His Lawyer filed the divorce almost a year ago as the plaintiff and is now taking me back to court on a counterclaim. However it does not discribe the complaint. Can you help me understand what his attorney is doing ?
So did you respond here to his petition?It is possible here that he has amended his original petition here and is proceeding with the divorce.I am assuming here that the divorce has not become finalized.
Can you give me your state here so I can get you forms?
Ga. And no it has not been finalized. I just recieved the document this weekend telling me that he has filed a counterclaim that is not described in the complaint. Could this be for child support and could I file a Nisi if I know what I am talking about. He has our son who is 10, and we have no assets.
You can file your own answer here and counterclaim.Here is the form to do that and to seek a to have court resolve custody here and child support/visitation.Since there are no assets that seems to be the only real issue.
Sample for you here.
I am not at all sure why he filed a counterclaim here since he filed for divorce bu the answer here above insures that this is disputed and the court will hear from you before anything is finalized.;
