CLK/CT. 314 - SUMMONS 20 DAY CORPORATE SERVICE (a) GENERAL FORMS. This form is used in either the Circuit Court of the Eleventh Judicial Circuit or the County Court of Miami-Dade County, Florida to officially notify the defendant(s) in a legal action about the lawsuit filed against them. The form provides options for the division of the court (civil, districts, other) and includes the case number. It identifies the plaintiff(s) and the defendant(s) involved in the case. The summons is addressed to each sheriff of the state, instructing them to serve the summons and a copy of the complaint or petition on the named defendant(s). The defendant(s) are required to serve a written defense to the complaint or petition within a specified time frame, which is typically 20 days from the date of service, excluding the day of service. However, there are exceptions mentioned in the form. For example, if the State of Florida, one of its agencies, or one of its officials or employees sued in their official capacity is a defendant, the time to respond may be extended to 40 days. When the lawsuit is brought pursuant to specific Florida Statutes (such as s. 768.28), the time to respond may be different, such as 30 days. The defendant(s) are instructed to file the original of their defenses with the Clerk of the Court either before serving the plaintiff's attorney or immediately thereafter. Failure to do so may result in a default judgment being entered against the defendant(s) for the relief sought in the complaint or petition.
