How can I file an answer to a complaint for divorce without an attorney?
It is preferable that parties seek the advice of a lawyer who will be familiar not only with the law but will also be familiar with the procedures of the court. If you cannot afford an attorney, see the following websites.
In an answer to a complaint, the defendant tells her side of the story. She is supposed to admit facts that are true and deny allegations that are not true. This answer must be filed within a certain period of time. Failure to file an answer can result in a default judgment against the defendant. This is a judgment for failure to defend that is entered against the defendant just like there had been a trial.
