My husband had deserted me when I was pregnant and has now has filed for an RCR. My daughter is a year old now. We attended 2 counselling sessions already and the 3rd one is next month. By when do i need to give a written response to the court? My lawyer said 90 days, so 90 days from when, when I asked the counselor, she said the court will tell me to when to do it, once the matter moves from counselling to court.
