Answering A Complaint

About Downloadable Files On This Page

In an adjacent box on this page, I have four files you may download to help you prepare a Pro Se Answer to a Complaint.

There is a sample Answer I have prepared in both Adobe Acrobat (PDF) format, as well as being included in WordPerfect (WPD) format.

I have also included the "Appendix of Forms" to the Utah Rules of Civil Procedure in Adobe Acrobat (PDF) format. This will serve as another example.

Form 1 will help with the Caption and Signature block.

Form 11 contains an Answer with a Counterclaim and Cross-claim (take note that it does not include a Jury Demand which I generally recommend).

Please Note that I have not given any advice or instructions about a Counterclaim or Cross-claim. If you feel one of these is needed, you will either need to consult an Attorney or, as a less preferred alternative, the Utah Rules of Civil Procedure (I think it is too complicated for a non-attorney or party inexperienced with lots of litigation).

Moreover, the jury demand fee has been raised to $250 from $75. Please make sure to consider whether the potential benefits of having a jury outweigh the fee of requesting one.
