Buffalo Divorce Lawyer Explains How Much Time You Have to Respond to Divorce Papers

When someone has been served with a divorce summons, they often ask me as a Buffalo Divorce Lawyer, how much time they have to respond.

  • That time is always printed right on the summons, and puts the recipient on notice that he or she has 20 days (or, in some cases 30 days) to respond.
  • People very often wait until the last minute so, while the clock ticks, they are under pressure to do something.
  • Because the response time is strictly limited, it is important to see your lawyer as quickly as possible and ensure submission of an appropriate response.
