Sorry for the delay; your question was just routed to me.

So essentially under GA code 9-10-111 if a party is served with a verified complaint the answer must be verified as well.

Per First National Bank v. Sinkler, if an answer is not verified the plaintiff may move to strike the answer as legally insufficient and simultaneously motion for judgment on the pleadings (170 GA 688)

How would you respond to the other party answering multiple numbered allegations by lumping them into one answer that is not clear as to which allegation it applies to?
Family Lawyer: LegalGems, Lawyer replied 29 days ago

Per 9-11-12:

A motion to strike based on insufficient or immaterial defense:

(f) Motion to strike. Upon motion made by a party within 30 days after the service of the pleading upon him, or upon the court's own initiative at any time, the court may order stricken from any pleading any insufficient defense or any redundant, immaterial, impertinent, or scandalous matter.

(g) Consolidation of defenses in motion. A party who makes a motion under this Code section may join with it any other motions provided for in this Code section and then available to him. If a party makes a motion under this Code section but omits therefrom any defense or objection then available to him which this Code section permits to be raised by motion, he shall not thereafter make a motion based on the defense or objection so omitted, except a motion as provided in paragraph (2) of subsection (h) of this Code section on any of the grounds there stated.

(h) Waiver or preservation of certain defenses.

(1) A defense of lack of jurisdiction over the person, improper venue, insufficiency of process, or insufficiency of service of process is waived:

(A) If omitted from a motion in the circumstances described in subsection (g) of this Code section; or

(B) If it is neither made by motion under this Code section nor included in a responsive pleading, as originally filed.

Can you provide a sample of the motion to strike?
Family Lawyer: LegalGems, Lawyer replied 27 days ago

Here is a sample motion

If you are near a law library or if your library offers online access, the Matthew Bender series has several templates as well, that can be used as examples when drafting a motion.

I hope this helps!

Further questions please post here otherwise kindly rate 5 stars if you feel I have earned it. Thank you!
