After you file an answer with the court
- The court clerk will give or mail you a court date for you and the plaintiff to come back to court.
- This will probably be for a Case Management Conference or a Pre-Trial Hearing.
- If you do not get a date 30 days after you have filed your answer, call the clerk's office at your court. Ask them for the date.
- If you or the plaintff filed a Motion, you will probably go back to court sooner. Look for a "Hearing Date" listed in any motion you get.
If your case is in small claims court
Go to court on the date in the summons.
