Although it might be tempting to ignore a summons and complaint, ignoring a lawsuit does not make it go away. And it could result in the court awarding a money judgment against you by default. That can lead to your wages being garnished, your bank accounts attached, or your property being taken!
A summons is a form prepared by the plaintiff and issued by a court that informs the defendant that they are being sued or are required to appear in court. It may be served by a sheriff or other authorized person, such as the process server.
A summons is the first process for a legal claim where a Plaintiff has instituted an action against a Defendant. Once the summons is served via Sheriff, you will have 10 days to respond with a Notice of Intention to Defend or attempt to negotiate a settlement with the Plaintiff.
In a special proceeding, the petition must be served along with either a notice of petition or an order to show cause, which fix a return date for the petition. A summons with notice or a summons and complaint must be served and proof of service filed within 120 days of getting the Index Number.
A summons is a court form which notifies the defendant that they are being sued and lists the day the defendant needs to appear in court (the Return Date). The court has no power to hear a case until the defendant is served the summons and complaint. The plaintiff selects both the Return Date and the trial date.

If you do not respond to a civil summons, the court can grant the other party judgment against you in the underlying case. This means the other side will automatically win. Failing to honor a criminal summons, by contrast, could lead to your arrest and even time in jail.
