A: It's called a reply and there is no form. Like the answer,you need to admit or deny each paragraph of the counterclaim..much like the answer you have received. Or hire an attorney.

A: Not sure exactly what you mean (likely you don't either). There is an 'answer and counterclaim' and a 'reply' which is sort of an answer to a counterclaim. Regardless there is no form for that. If you need to reply to a counterclaim then you must have done an answer. If you are on here asking about a reply, odds are you are the one who did the answer. Based on the content of this question, odds also are that you screwed up the answer in some fashion and are about to screw up the reply. Your best bet is to simply hire an attorney. Think of it this way - if you aren't a mechanic you'd never think to attempt to rebuild your cars transmission. You'd bite the bullet and go to a mechanic. The same is true for legal work. If you do your own legal work and aren't an attorney you can expect potential results similar to if you attempted to rebuild your cars transmission and you aren't a mechanic. Best of luck.
