  • How to do I set up an answer to respond to a summons that was sent to me

    Please I am in need of some serious help due to everything being due by July 15

    Steven’s Answer

    The document should have you name and contact info at the upper left, then the court name, then the caption, on the right the label "Answer", then a response to each of the allegations in the complaint, then your defenses, then your prayer, then date and signature, then mailing certificate. But you are not wise doing this on your own. Get to a lawyer.
