Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
If ever you are served with a summons, you should file an answer/reply as soon as possible. Do not delay; the failure to file could cause you to forfeit your rights and allow the plaintiff/petitioner to get a default judgment against you. Do not regard this as a "request", rather, it may be your only opportunity to respond.
If you are apprehensive about the address that you found on the internet, call the court clerk and ask the mailing address for filing. You'll have to wait on the phone for about 5minutes. Just give them your case number XXXXX the name of the parties, and they will give you the specific address to mail to. It's just that easy!
