What do I do if I receive certified mail containing legal documents?

Call an attorney. If you receive the summons and a petition then it will contain instructions. Typically you’ll have 20 days to respond. It is important that you respond.

What happens if I don’t respond? You run the risk of the default judgment being entered against you.

What is a default judgement? Default judgment is the order giving the petitioner everything they ask for in the petition. It is a court order and enforceable by the law.

If you are in Kentucky, then I’d recommend that you call my office at 502-587-1950 or 502-509-1490 to schedule a consultation if you have an agreement, parenting schedule or court order to discuss your options.
