Default time frames to respond or make deal?

couple questions.
We are separated but im not interested in negotiations on anything presently. Is there a time frame where I have to respond to spouse on division of assets? If and when spouse gets a lawyer to send letter or whatever means to get a negotiations process going , does that require a response? Quite willing to wait on finalizing and maybe the long wait would or could make for a smoother settlement or backfire and worse case is we go to court and end up splitting 50/50 anyways. Married 7yrs and no kids.

What reason do you have that you don't want to settle right away? Not sure on this and others will correct me if I am wrong, but if the ex is willing to settle and you are not responding or just don't feel like settling right now, could that not be seen as abandonment? If no lawyers are needed to settle, why would you wait it out so the ex has to hire a lawyer?

one reason would be unreasonable demands. If not willing to be reasonable and make a fair deal, then lets drag out so there is no payments or settlement for quite some time.

So make reasonable offers back.

If you say nothing, then their side can use your silence against you. Make sure you give them what is fair, not what you think is best for you, just what is fair.

Offer mediation is you have to. But just be reasonable. Don't sit on your thumbs because they can use that against you. Be proactive with offers.
