My question involves divorce in the State of: MO
My wife recently filed for divorce and I was served about a week ago. Do I have 30 days from the day I received the papers or 30 days from the date of filing to respond? Also, I do not want to hire and attorney although she has. Does anyone have an example of an answer to a divorce summons they could send to me? I have directions on how to file an answer, but no examples to go off of. We have only been married 6 months and we have little to nothing to "split up" in form of property. I have no idea why she has hired an attorney. I am against the divorce and want to stall for as long as I can without contesting the divorce. Do I have any rights to "extend" the period between filing and an answer?
