Just a plain answer to a divorce complaint, I don't have a lawyer so write by myself, wondering if need to be notarized, I know the complaint has, just don't know if an answer needs too.

  1. Generally speaking, in divorce cases in Tennessee, the Defendant will not only respond via an Answer to Complaint, but will also file a Counter-Complaint with the Answer. If a Counter-Complaint is provided with the Answer and testimony sworn in accordance therewith, you would need to sign before a notary. I would strongly encourage you to consult with a localized attorney in your area, who regularly handles domestic matters.
