Do I need to respond to emails from my ex’s attorney?
The drop off and pickup times are listed in the order. Am I obligated to respond?

You are wearing the attorney hat - I assume. Lawyers may not communicate with represented party absent specific consent. The courteous and ethical thing to do is to respond to the lawyer. There may be some misunderstanding as to those times - some orders allow the parties to agree otherwise. t
No, you’re not obligated to respond, but it would be good if you understood whether or not it would be beneficial for you to do so. That would require an expert analysis of the entire scenario and none of us here can do that for you.
This is general advice. You are anonymous. If you PM me i won’t know what it’s about.
