| | Need an answer about divorce summons
So, I've been here for a while, and I am still working on getting money so I can fight for my children. The problem is, I am having difficulty in gathering enough money for the initial deposit for my attorney. It's an emotional hell for me right now. It's been suggested that I don't sign the divorce papers.
Is that even possible?
I've been served divorce papers. I have an attorney. I just cannot forward an official response until I have the funds. And representing myself is out of the option - I'd have to drive two hours to get there and money is not that great at this specific moment.
I was told that even if I don't reply, I can delay the process until I get the money. I'm iffy on that. Can somebody shed some light and perhaps help me. If it helps, I'm residing in the state of Missouri.
