Hi,

I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today.

Cases are almost never decided solely on the pleadings. As long as your response shows that there's a dispute regarding the facts presented in the Complaint or how the law applies, then the judge should order a trial. You're also allowed to amend your Answer later if you find a mistake.

That's very helpful. How do I know if this is family law or real estate
Expert:  Lucy, Esq. replied 1 month ago.

For family law, the property division would be part of a dissolution of a domestic partnership or a divorce. If you never married or registered, then it's a real estate issue.

Thank You So Much, we were never DP or married
Expert:  Lucy, Esq. replied 1 month ago.

Okay, then you have a real estate case.
