LEGAL GUIDE
Written by attorney John Griffin Watts

How long do I have to answer an ejectment lawsuit after a foreclosure in Alabama?

In Circuit Court, which is where your ejectment would be filed, you have 30 days from the day you were served to answer the lawsuit.

Be proactive.

Answer the lawsuit within the time limit that you're given.

If you don't answer the lawsuit before the deadline, lots of bad things can happen.

This includes losing your house and losing your right of redemption.

Hope this is helpful to you.
