    Legal question - CA family law

    I have a pending court case where I am representing myself as the petitioner. I have just received the response from my ex-husband. do I counter this response in writing to the court or wait until the hearing to state my side?

    A couple of suggesttions:

    Call the Court Clerk's office and ask them.

    Call Legal Aid and get some information from them.

    Depending where you are, there may be a law library where you can ask the librarian for information. They will be very careful not to give legal advice but there is no reason they can't help you decipher procedural requirements.

    If you have insurance through an employer, you may have an EAP that will include a small amout of legal counseling.

    Good luck,

    I was going to say essentially the same thing. The specific court's procedural rules are going to dictate whether you are able to file a reply, and if so, how much time you have to do it.
