    Hi,

    My ex-husband filed an Initiating Application in the Federal Circuit Court instead of responding to a magistrate's request for further information. He offered me substantially less than what was originally agreed on. Eventually, we agreed on the same thing again after I had a lawyer for a few weeks and I signed consent orders, however, I am now worse off because of the legal fees. Everything the lawyer suggested, he just refused to acknowledge including that he had a daughter, we paid child support for the entire time.

    Should I still file a response to his Affidavit, as there are numerous lies in it which can still be proven with bank statements, however, it is past the 14-day return date.

    Initially, he told me he would withdraw his affidavit. However now he hasn't done that.

    Thanks.

    Yes, you should definitely file a response. Not doing so will only delay the matter and may result in the court ordering you to pay his legal fees.
