Legal Answers
Q. How do I answer a divorce summons if I have only a few days left?
A: You can simply write a letter saying that you received the summons and that you request a thirty day extension of time to engage an attorney. Send it to the other attorney certified mail return receipt requested. That should buy you another month. But you really need to speak to a local divorce attorney about this as soon as possible.
