FAQ - Divorce

I was served with divorce papers on June 3. Exactly how many days do I have to respond?

See the table below for how long you have to file a written response to the petition. Find the date in the “After” column on a calendar. Start counting on the next day. Count off the days in the “Count” column, including weekends and holidays. You must respond by the last date you counted, unless it is a weekend or court holiday, in which case you must respond by the next workday.
