Thank you for your question.
If you received a cross motion, you have the opportunity to file a reply as it relates to the positions set forth in the cross motion. The reply should be submitted to the Court at least 8 days before the hearing so it can be considered. Based on your circumstances, it would be best to contact an experienced family law attorney to address your specific concerns and to ensure you understand your rights.
I hope this information was helpful to you.

You can address the lack of discovery in your response, but it probably won’t foreclose a valid motion for support. Most pendente lite support orders are made prior to the exchange of discovery.
You can either apply for legal services if you cannot afford an attorney or ask the local bar association if they can appoint a Pro Bono attorney. Trying to represent yourself in any legal proceeding, especially a divorce matter is unwise, to put it charitably. You need an in person consultation with an experienced matrimonial attorney, who can review all previous legal proceedings and documents. Then the attorney will be able to advise you how to proceed. You need to ask yourself, can I afford not to have an attorney? Good luck.
