How should I reply to a summons? Posted on January 07, 2011

I was issued a summons on a debt by an attorney yesterday in Lewis and Clark County and I have 20 days to respond. I have been in touch w/the plaintiff to work out a settlement prior (12-2-2010). I called today and talked to the plaintiff about this summons and she told me that it is protocol and to respond so my wages do not get garnished. How do I go about replying to this summons? Do I need to file with the court? I have no idea what to! Thank you!
