Em contestação o réu levantou preliminar de inépcia da petição inicial e, no mérito, sustentou que a autora pretende impedi-lo, de ter acessoaos filhos, o que já vem ocorrendo há seis meses.
|English translation:argued preliminarily that the complaint brief is defective|
the "inicial" would usually be the "petition" or the "complaint brief." It's quite common for the opposing party to argue that there's something wrong with that document - filed too late, addressed to the wrong party, party not properly represented etc etc
