In re:

Summons Served by Publication

To: Carly Benton

I have started a court case by filing a petition. The name of the Petition is:

Petition for a Parenting Plan, Residential Schedule and/or Child Support.

You must respond in writing if you want the court to consider your side.

Deadline! Your Response must be filed and served within 60 days of the date this Summons is published: 12/21/2020. If you do not file and serve your Response or a Notice of Appearance by the deadline:

* No one has to notify you about other hearings in this case, and

* The court may approve the requests in the Petition without hearing your side (called a default judgment).

Follow these steps:

1. Read the Petition and any other documents that were filed at court with this Summons.

Those documents explain what the other party is asking for.

2. Fill out a Response on this form (check the Response that matches the Petition):

FL Parentage 332, Response to Petition for Parenting Plan, Residential Schedule and/or Child Support
