DearCustomer- You would prepare an answer to the complaint using the same heading as the complaint and where it says "Complaint" you would put "Answer". Then below in the body you would simply state "Defendant denies each and every allegation of Plaintiff's complaint".
Sign the answer, file it with the court and sent a copy to the Plaintiff or his attorney, whoever filed it.
