If you receive a form called a Summons (SUM-100) it means that someone is suing you in court. In addition to the Summons, you’ll also receive another document, called a Complaint. The Complaint describes the details of the case against you.

The BEST advice I can offer is HIGHER an ATTORNEY

Here are three steps to responding to a Summons and Complaint:

  1. Answer each claim listed in the complaint.
  2. Assert your affirmative defenses.
  3. File the Answer with the court and serve the plaintiff.
