If you’ve been served with a Complaint for Divorce, don’t panic. That’s the first thing I like to tell people. You should come in and speak to an attorney. An attorney who’s experienced in these matters will allay your concerns and fears. You have sufficient time. The summons will say you have 35 days, but those days can be expanded upon. The first step is finding an attorney that you’re comfortable with who has the skill-set that you need, as anybody needs, to have your divorce handled appropriately and effectively. Sit down with that attorney and figure out what your rights and responsibilities are.
