The legal term for the day is “Answer”. Have you been served with a complaint? If you have, chances are that it requested that you file an answer within a certain amount of time required to submit to the complaint. So what is the definition of an answer? According to http://www.uscourts.gov/glossary,it is “the formal written statement by a defendant in a civil case that responds to a complaint, articulating the grounds for defense.” The answer is mandatory so don’t take this lightly. Consult with an attorney to help you file an answer. If you need me to help you click here. I hope you have enjoyed your legal term for today. If someone complains just answer their complaint.
