Re: file written response out of state

There are a few issues that a lawyer would look through for you that are too complicated to explain here. Basically, they would help you determine if the summons properly brings you before the court and, thus, whehther it would be wisest to respond or not.

Given that I cannot address all of those issues, if you decide to respond to the summons, then you simply mail your response to the court clerk of the court listed in the summons and to any other party listed on the summons. Be aware that doing so may mean you are waiving certain objections, like an objection to personal jurisdiction.
