I am sorry to hear of this difficult situation.

There are no forms to fill out in response. This is a quasi criminal proceedings for the most part and as such this is really a summons to appear and you will have to defend yourself in person.

They are not out of time for serving you. Even if this was a regular motion you would only have 4 days to respond.

Please feel free to post back with any follow-up questions you may have. If you don't have any then I hope I have earned a 5 star rating but if you don't feel that I have please don't hesitate to reply back and let me know what more I can do to assist you. Finally, please know that even after you rate me I will be here for you and you can ask follow-up questions if you think of them later on at no further charge of course.
