Your partner must serve you with a copy of their documents at least 4 days before the date of your motion.

Your partner must serve you with a copy of their documents at least 4 days before the date of the motion.

You should read these documents carefully. Make sure you understand what your partner is asking for.

If your partner asks for new things that are not in your court forms, you don't have to respond to them. If you don't, it means you don't agree with what your partner has said.

But, if you want to reply to their new claims with your facts and evidence, you fill out Form 14A: Affidavit. If you reply, you must serve and file your reply 3 days before your motion.
