am plaintiff and Prose in my New Jersey child custody case, I have sent Discovery documents to Defendant attorney, I did not received response. Its more than 40 days. Summon says 30 days. What do I do now?
A: Thank you for your inquiry. I am so sorry to hear that you are going through this difficult time. If the other side is not complying with deadlines set by the Court, it would be appropriate for you to send a letter detailing the deficiencies and then file an application with the Court to enforce the prior Order. Custody litigation is extremely difficult and the exchange of information can also be hard to navigate. I highly recommend that you schedule a strategy session with an experienced attorney who can provide additional information and guidance to help you navigate the litigation process.
