Your papers would need to be reviewed or more details are needed. Where you served a court order or only a new petition for custody. If it is a new case you have to file a Response within 30 days. If there is a hearing date, then your response is due 9 court days before the hearing. You should consult with an attorney about your documents.

If you were just served papers to go to court for custody, you file a response not an appeal. Please meet with an experienced family law attorney to explore your legal options.
