    I have been served with a summons and need to file an answer to the complaint in the case. The complaint is titled
    "Verified Complaint For Breach Of Settlement, Breach Of Fiduciary Duty, Fraud, and Unjust Enrichment"
    Do I need a Layer to file the answer or can I do it myself as I am broke?

    You can do it yourself but I would recommend obtaining an attorney. An answer is a very important pleading and doing it incorrectly can really hurt your chances down the road. You can contact your local bar association and ask them to refer you to a free civil law clinic and see if they can help you. Otherwise you will have to familiarize yourself with all the necessary rules required to properly answering a complaint in your jurisdiction.
