I am the respondent and I was served with the Petition of Dissolution of Marriage with Minor Child.
There seems to be two contradicting points regarding the custody of the
child and I want to answer it agreeing with most of it except for this
Please I need some help.
I already asked
for an extension from the court so that I can have time to answer
accordingly. Thank you.
The divorce form you need is the Answer to Petition and Counterpetition for Dissolution of Marriage with Dependent or Minor Children, Form 12.903(c)(1).
This court form is fairly simple and straightforward on how to fill out.
In your case, you will be answering paragraphs 1, 2, and 3 describing the points you agree with, those you don't agree with, and whether or not you admit or deny any other paragraphs in the original Petition for Dissolution of Marriage with which you were served.
Be sure to fill out the Section VI of the answer and counterpetition for any requests you are asking the court to order.
This is where you will be asking the court to rule on the custody issues you mention.
The rest of the Answer to Petition and Counterpetition form is similar to the Petition for Dissolution of Marriage with Children form.
Have a look at our web-powered instructions page for Florida divorce form 12.901(b)(1) for more information and help filling out this section.
Also look at our Florida parenting plan page where you will find more information about custody and visitation.
