Minnesota Contract Dispute: Answer

From LegalLanding

If you, or your client, are served a complaint as a defendant in a Minnesota state court, then you will need to draft an Answer. You will also want to reference the Minnesota Rules of Civil Procedure, specifically look at Rules 4, 5, 7, and 12. A copy of your completed, signed and verified answer must be served on the opposing party or her attorney within 20 days after you receive the summons and complaint. After the papers are served, you must file the original Answer and the affidavit of service with the court and pay a filing fee (currently $320.00). You may obtain a waiver of the fees if you meet certain financial guidelines.
