I was served with divorce papers. What should I do if I am served?

If you are served with divorce papers, after you get over the initial shock, you should contact an attorney. Attorneys that handle divorces are considered Family Law Attorneys. You do not want to procrastinate about consulting with an attorney once you have been served. If you are served with divorce papers you have a deadline to file an answer with the clerk of the court. If you do not file an answer, your spouse may get a “default divorce” against you. That would mean your spouse determining all property division and child related issues with you having no say. You do not want a default divorce against you.

If you have been served and wish to speak with a lawyer, call me, Cari Brownlee, at 281-998-8880.
