Have you received a summons? That means you are being summoned to appear in court. The subpoena explains why you have been summoned and at what time you must appear in court. You can be summoned for various reasons. For example, it may be a monetary claim that has not yet been paid or contractual agreements that are not being met.
Respond to the summons
When you have received a summons, it is important to take action quickly. If you do not respond in time to the summons, you will be convicted. This is also called a default judgment. The process is different in each country but generally for claims up to € 25,000 you may respond to the summons in writing or orally in court. When it comes to international summons, documents may need to be provided in the native language of the country; if English is one of the official languages of the country, then documents may be provided in this language. In most cases it is wise to consult a lawyer. This prevents you from leaving important legal arguments behind or that your position is not sufficiently demonstrated.
