What Is a Summons?
In general, any summons is a court document that states the names of the plaintiff and defendant, the title and file number of the case, the court and its address, the involved attorneys and their addresses, and instructions regarding the process and timeframe for the defendant to file a response.
A summons is so important because it provides all parties involved in a lawsuit with the basic information necessary to participate and remain informed. An alias or pluries summons is the second summons served if the first is not able to be delivered successfully.
The complaint that comes along with the summons lists the wrongdoings that the plaintiff has accused the defendant of committing, as well as the legal remedy being pursued. If the person served does not respond to the summons in the necessary time frame, the plaintiff can request a default judgement from the court.
The Basics of a Subpoena
A subpoena can occur in two forms. First, you may be called upon to testify in court on a certain matter. It is also possible to receive a subpoena that requires you to produce written materials, documents, or evidence relating to a court case. If you ignore your subpoena, you might be subject to fines, jail time, or even both in severe situations.
