depends on the state
but when my ex ‘filed’ (i filed for him but not legally) for divorce, the papers that were served were together already with everything, we did it ourselves, no lawyers…so I served him with them so that he can serve me with them before it was filed in court…and I believe when I got served with them I had a month to respond

Sorry you’re having to go through this… it’s no fun. I hope the process will be as pain-free as possible!
