I'm so sorry to post again! I have to handle a lawsuit myself - no $ for lawyer.
I remember when I fell behind on divorce lawyer payments 7-8 years ago he filed a lawsuit against me. I recall going to the court house to file my answer - but was completely unsure of what I was doing. When I asked the court clerks for help they were extremely vague & unhelpful. They said they couldn't help much because it would be like they were giving me legal advice which they were not allowed to do.
Have things changed in this aspect. Often is seems you have to have some kind of legal experience to know what you are doing when you go in to file your answers and such. I was completely unsure if I was doing things right & am worried about doing things right with my case coming up on 8-28.
