re FLORIDA LAW

Defendant is responding to a summons/complaint pro se and has prepared an Answer and Aff. Def. Does Defendant need to now notarize the Answer and get a sworn statement saying "above is true & correct" etc. before filing Or is Defendant's signature sufficient along with stating that copy of said Answer has been provided to Plaintiff?

Thank you.

Attorney Arcadier : No need to have it notarize or even affirm that it is truthfu
Attorney Arcadier : No need to notarize or assert that it is truthful. Simply answer all paragraphs, mail to plaintiff, file with court within 20 dayys of service.

Re Florida Rules...


In Answering complaint with Answ. and Aff. Def... as a final Aff Def. can Defendant plead the following:




If allowed by this Court, Defendant reserves the right to plead other affirmative defenses that may become available at a later time.


Yes, common to write that, but in reality it is meaningless to write that.
