You were served with papers because someone has filed a lawsuit against you. These papers put you on notice of the lawsuit and what the petitioner is seeking in the lawsuit. You have thirty days to respond. It is very important that you speak with a lawyer right away to discuss how to properly respond. If you ignore this lawsuit, the petitioner will very likely ask the court to render a default judgment against you. The court would then issue a judgment without your input.
