In 99% of the cases, they will require you to answer the summons, and each point they are claiming. We need to know what the "charges" are. Please post what they are claiming. Did you receive an interrogatory (questionnaire) regarding the lawsuit? I have 21 days to file a written answer, no questionnaire

16. What evidence did they send with the summons? An affidavit? Statements from the OC? Contract? List anything else they attached as exhibits.  Statements from OC, Affidavits, Bill of Sale.  Will include all below just want to omit all personal info before doing so
