Sometimes there may be a delay in receiving a reply from me as I work on creating the best solution to the question you have presented.
I am sorry to hear that you are divorcing but glad to see you are taking proactive steps to help yourself in this divorce process.
2 questions: why would she use petioner/respondent rather than plaintiff/defendant:
The person seeking the divorce (the "plaintiff" or "petitioner") must file a document in the appropriate Superior Court. This document is called the "complaint" or "petition." A copy of the complaint will be served on the other spouse (the "defendant" or "respondent"). There is no advantage or disadvantage of using either term as they mean the same.
do I still reference O.G.C.A sections 9-11-34 and 9-11-26 in paulding county Georgia, or are the codes different when the respondent (defendant) is requesting documents from the petitioner?:
You can use O.C.G.A sections 9-11-34 and 9-11-26. A party that is engaged in a contested legal matter may make a written request for a document production on the opposing party. The Civil Practice Act as codified in the Official Code of Georgia (Section 9-11-34 (a) (1) & (b)).
Finally your written statement as posted here appear to be appropriate.
I hope you found this answer helpful and I'm here in the future if you have additonal questions.
Have a good day,
