Defence and counterclaim for divorce or judicial separation (FL009)

In a contested divorce or a judicial separation the respondent has the option of submitting a defence to all or any of the claims made by the applicant in the 'Indorsement of claim' section of the family law civil bill. In addition the respondent can counter with claims of their own, i.e. counterclaims. The respondent can also apply for certain court orders, or reliefs, in the same manner as the applicant. The family law civil bill informed the respondent that if they do not acknowledge it the court will regard the respondent to have admitted the applicant's claims and judgment can be given against them without further notice. It also stated that if the respondent intended to defend the proceeding they must, within ten days, deliver a statement in writing showing the nature and grounds of their defence which is what this document is used for.
