Two very important things, respond to the summons, and make certain to claim all the property exemptions that are allowed in accordance with the state laws where you live. If you own a home make sure the homestead exemption has been properly filed if it is required. The homestead exemption is what protects the equity in the primary residence and keeps creditors from using a lien to execute a forced sale of the property. If a lawsuit is not defended, and exemption claims are not filed, the defendant loses the case by default. This could result in the loss of real and personal property that would otherwise have been exempted from creditor attachment.
