Indicate what you intend to do

If you are the defendant, you have 20 days to indicate what you intend to do, counting from the date on which you receive the application. If you do nothing, a judgment may be rendered against you and you may be forced to pay the applicant’s claim without having a chance to give your version of the facts.

To indicate which option you have chosen, you must use the form used by defendant to indicate an option.

The options available to you are to:

Proceedings against several defendants

If you are one of several defendants in a case, you can still use the interactive form to indicate the option you have chosen. The form has space for several applicants and several defendants.

The defendants can complete a single form if they all choose the same option. In other cases, one form must be completed for each option chosen by one or more defendants. In the section “Identification de la partie défenderesse”, only the contact information for the defendants who choose that option should be entered.
