Hi rainmain58:

Thanks so much for giving me the opportunity to assist you with your question through JustAnswer. You must file an answer to the allegations contained in the lawsuit that was serviced on you. You need to answer the allegations in a paragraph form the same way the allegations were set forth in the complaint. Such as. “1. Allegation in paragraph one are denied.” Etc. The original answer must be mailed back to the clerk’s office on the address of the summons. A copy should be faxed or mailed back to the attorney representing the plaintiff in the lawsuit no later than 20 days from the date you were served with the complaint. I suggest that you personally hand deliver and file the original answer with the clerk’s office within the 20 days from the date it was served on you. Eventually, I suggest that you hire an attorney in your location to represent you. But the foregoing information with keep “the wolves outside your door” temporarily. Don’t put it off, file and mail the answer to the other side earily. I hope this helps with your situation. Please select the green "accept" so that I can get credit for my reply to your question. Also, positive feedback is appreciated. If you have a follow-up question, Just ask. Good luck with your legal issue!

Best Regards,
