請各路英雄人仕幫幫忙，基於事情來得太急，令本人十分担憂，剛收到對方的律師信，信中1) 呈請人是否可以不提交及回覆本人於FORM E的全部的提問，其並且堅持要本人替其支付有關文件費才去辦理索取有關資料，2)其亦提出要即時擱置原先跟另一聯名物業持有人的爭拗，直至本人的離婚訴訟完成才進行。 3) 由於本人仍與子女住在婚姻居所，若本人堅持自住，袛要求給本人贍養費及繼續樓按供款，可以嗎﹖基於其另一物業牽涉在本人的離婚的財產之中，本人可否反建議，要求先進行其信託物業先呢﹖因本人担心會造成不公平及不合理的情況，請問本人可否向法庭提出反對及不接受呢﹖距離上庭的日子還有二天，本人担心會否因沒有回覆而當成接受呢﹖請問本人現在可以怎樣做呢﹖可否幫幫忙，回答本人的提問，儘快回覆呢﹖謝謝。

Let me make it simple for you.
a. A correspondence from a law firm is simply a notice to you. Its legal authority is similar to any letters you received (except government letters).
For example, if a law firm sends you a letter saying you owe $1,000, but you are sure you did not, will you pay that?
b. A law firm can respond whatever the firm wants. So even it is something that the firm is supposed to do, the firm can still say no.
c. You can ask whatever you want. It is simply the issue that will another party allows it.
In answering your questions:
1. Yes - unless it is a court mandated disclosure request. However, at the same time:
i. The firm can't use the same information against you (An evidence can't be used unless it has been disclosed to another party);
ii. You can request the court for a disclosure request;
It is simply a tactic for law firms to make more money.
2. The firm can demand. That's all the firm can do.
Unless the lawsuit involves any interests of the family court proceeding, I don't see why you should listen.
You can recommend anything you want.
3. You can raise any issues to the court. It is up to the court to decide.
Let be honest with you - if you receive the letter less than reasonable time frame (30 days), the lawyer's conduct is questionable.
In this case, of course you have the right not to respond.
Even more, you can ask for a continuance from the court as well.

Since your earning ability is questionable, then you should focus on any on-going benefits (like monthly maintenance) instead of any one-time deal (any buy-out, property deals, etc.)
