Frequently Asked Questions

  • I have been served with a Complaint, what should I do? In Florida, you have 20 days to file an answer to the Complaint and to serve affirmative defenses to the Complaint (this may vary depending on the venue or type of case). With certain affirmative defenses, they may be waived if you do not timely assert them. If you do not have an attorney, you should retain one immediately to advise you of and to preserve your legal rights.
  • ​What if the party suing me is in the wrong? Often times parties on both sides of the case have claims against the other party. In this situation you may have a counterclaim against the other party. Counterclaims must also be timely filed in order to preserve your rights.
  • ​Does my business need a registered agent? Yes, Florida law requires that every corporation designate a registered agent. Additionally, Florida law requires that the registered agent's office remain open from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. each day except Saturdays, Sundays, and legal holidays, and keep someone on whom process may be served at the office during these hours.
