it does not matter really; usually the first-served Petition is the leading case and the other petition can function as a response.
This response will not create an attorney-client relationship between you and Sarieh Law Offices, and is not intended to serve as a legal advice in your specific circumstances. This response is a legal opinion based solely on facts represented and you should not rely on this legal opinion as a legal advice. You still need to consult an attorney directly to fully protect your legal rights.
I agree, which ever is served first will be considered the case that the other will be consolidated into. That said, there is virtually no benefit to being the Petitioner so there should be no reason to contest a request to consolidate the two cases into one.
