Process Server served my Original Petition for Divorce with Citation onto my Soon-Ex. Then, my Soon-Ex had a Process Server to serve me a COUNTER-Original Petition for Divorce. Her service was defective so the Judge ruled that "I was not served". Therefore, I have to be served again, per the Judges ruling.
Question: In Texas divorce, is it MANDATORY that a CITATION accompanies her COUNTER-Original Petition, when she tries to serve me a 2nd time?
Emphasis: 1) COUNTER...this in not just an Original Petition...it's a "Counter" Original Petition.
Emphasis: 2) Please base your answer on this Texas Family Code: Sec. 6.408. SERVICE OF CITATION. Citation on the filing of an original petition in a suit for dissolution of a marriage SHALL be issued and served as in other civil cases.
