Hi Experts, While filing WS in Divorce case do I only deny my wifes false allegations or it is OK to put my counter claims also in the WS.
I read amny Family court Judgements, WS is heavily relied on and in some cases Judges mentioned as the Respondent had no such pleading in the WS , he is not allowed to plead the same on later stages.
Approach suggested by my lawyer is as follows:
Deny her allegations para wise and later add your counter claims with our story.
I spoke to another Family court senior lawyer, his views were that only deny the allegations first and later file an application to ammend the WS and get your counter there.
Can experts and other litigant friends throw some light about pros and cons of above suggestions.
