Read the complaint carefully and determine what the creditor wants the court to do.
Then write an answer to civil summons. It is best to respond to each numbered paragraph of the complaint or petition.
Every allegation in a complaint is usually given a number. You should number your answer the same way.
If you have other facts that you want the judge to know, add additional numbered paragraphs.Please note that this is not legal advice. For legal advice you need to
retain a local attorney.
