The Answer is a legal pleading filed in court by the defendant in response to the plaintiffs pleading called a Complaint. If the defense fails to file the Answer within a prescribed period of time, normally 30 days from having been legally served with the Complaint, the defense will be in default and is legally deemed to have waived any and all defenses and objections to plaintiffs allegations alleged in the Complaint.
