You can submit your answer in writing to the Court. You may prepare your own form or use one of the Court's answer forms that are available to you at no cost. Another option is to consult with an attorney. You will find a link to the State Bar of Georgia on this page. The summons requires that you file the answer within thirty (30) days of being served. The date after service is counted as day one. If the thirtieth day falls on a day when the Court is closed (a weekend or legal holiday), the answer is due on the next day that the Court is open.
