Good Morning,

I will try to best answer your question.

It depends. When you say claim are you referring to a post separation divorce claim onlly, or a claim for divorce and support? You need to review the claim and see what relief is being requested. If you are unable to determine from the documents what is being sought I would ask you're trying to clarify that includes the child support.
