Hello, I will be assisting you
Generally a proposed answer included in a motion to set a default motion aside is the answer that would be used. Although be mindful that once the case goes back on "normal" track the defendant will have the right to amend their answer at least once so the answer could be amended in the future
thank you for allowing me to assist you
For the most part the motion to set aside is not substantive on the mertis of the case rather it's about giving the judge an excusable reason why the action was not answered in time. So technically the judge is not suppose to rely on the answer but often if the answer is attached they take a look and unofficially add that to their consideration even if unofficially.
