How do I file a response to a motion for enforcement? Format wise. and do you count weekends in the date due? Texas

Humble, TX |

Ex filed a motion for enforcement /contempt because I wouldn't let him claim our son. 3rd court order states every other year. latest court order states "full effect including any VALID order of tax dependency" He refused to sign papers 2 times and judge wrote that in and underlined valid in bold and signed it for him. It was explained that court papers have nothing to do with taxes. He refused to listen but is now suing me. I need to file an answer but I am running around. I dont know the correct format. Use his or use another I found that just states simple answer. His is 1.2.3. format with jurisdiction, contempt, settlement attempts, clarification and prayer. Any help would be appreciated
