She is late filing her answer and counterclaim.You should oppose the motion and argue its too late and default divorce should be granted.She was negligent here in responding to the divorce.Court might deny the motion here, its worth you opposing it.You can file a response to motion and argue she was not diligent and default should be granted.

I appreciate the chance to help you today.Thanks

If you can positive rate 5 stars it is much appreciated.
