And if there are kids involved, and I hope there are not, you are doing them a huge disservice if you're trying to handle this yourself with a book and by asking students on a message board. ("Daddy loves you son, but he didn't want to get a credit card with 0% APR introductory rate and slowly pay off a $3k lawyer bill. Daddy also loves cable and cellphone too.")

Man, you can be a real heartless b*tch sometimes.
Thanks again to those who have replied.I was posing a hypothetical situation because it was suggested. I am not trying to get anyone in trouble.I KNOW I NEED an attorney. I have contacted several attorneys. I consulted with 2. Everyone I talked with charged a minimum of $3 K before continuing on, + over $200 an hour when that runs out. If I had the money I wouldn't be asking for help on a message board. I bought a divorce book at Books-a-Million. I went to the library and researched the Tennessee divorce laws. I have looked all over the internet. I called the court to ask for the appropriate responsive documents. Again I was told they didn't do that - I would have to see an attorney. She gave me the Chancellor's number. I called and got the same. I said I was responding myself and she told me they would not accept it unless it was the proper form.How do you defend yourself if the attorneys are the only ones who can properly respond?My next step is going to the court to ask to see other divorce papers since they are of public record, as I was told by another lawyer.I just want to know where to get the form to answer a complaint or if I type it up myself what should be in it. Thanks again
