Re: summons served
What is most important is that you file your answer in the time period given. You have 30 days, not counting the day you were served, to file an answer. If you do not then you will be defaulted against and you will lose no matter what your defenses are. The case will proceed from there with you ending up in court if you do not settle this matter. My office is in Colorado Springs. I am not sure where you are but if you want to retain an attorney to assist you, please call me at 719.388.8899.
