In my husbands case, his ex filed a late affidavit that had limited bearing on the motion before the court. The judge blasted her on it first for it being inflammatory and second because it wasn’t served properly. What she thought would be a nail in my husband’s coffin ended up biting her in the ass. Unless the material deals with actual fact there is no point responding or even putting much weight in it. Husband’s lawyer said it wasn’t worth worrying about and he was right.

A lot of people get so caught up in having the last word or defending themself against an unreasonable person that they lose sight of the actual matter and shoot themselves in the foot. If it isn’t relevant a judge can see through it quickly. Always remember that you only have one case. Judges have hundreds and they are also former lawyers themselves who have seen a lot of unreasonable behaviour. They cut through the bullshit quickly.
