Rule 7

In all cases not governed by the Mass.R.Dom.Rel.P., amended and supplemental pleadings shall be governed by Mass.R.Civ.P. 15. In all cases commenced by petition, except for joint petitions for divorce, petitions for grandparent visitation and joint petitions for modification of child support, a "responsive pleading" shall include an appearance filed before 10:00 a.m. on the return day.

Reporter's notes

(2012) Mass.R.Civ.P. 15 already addresses this issue. A different rule is not needed.
