Answer/Response to Involuntary Petition

Rev. 12/01/2015

 

The alleged debtor is required to file an answer or responsive pleading within 21 days following service of the summons.   If the alleged debtor/defendant does not answer or file a motion pursuant to Fed. R. Bankr. P. 1011 within 21 days, or such time as court may fix, 11 U.S.C.  303(h) provides that the court shall enter an order for relief.

 

The Court will proceed to administer the case depending upon the answer. Once an answer is filed, a  hearing is set to determine whether the case should be dismissed or an order entered for relief placing the alleged debtor in bankruptcy.
