One of my friend's wife estranged him around 18 months back and he now received a notice from the court asking him to appear. However, he does not have any details of the petition as it was not attached with the notice of appearance. He doesnt even know if she is asking for restitution, divorce or what. Is it ok that he receives a notice this way? I mean, if he has to appear in court, he has to be prepared. right? without knowing what is there in the petition, how can he be prepared?
Please help understand the flow of the process.
