Filling out forms


#1

I have just gotten all the forms to fill out, already stumped on page 1 of the complaint.
This is the sentence:
The ______________________ has agreed to file an Answer and Affidavit in Support of
___________________. No service of process is necessary at this time.

Question 1, Does defendant or plaintiff go in the first blank
Question 2, Does Final Degree go into the second blank?

I’m not sure what that form is for, so I’d need more information. If you want to represent yourself in court you may find Rosen Online a helpful resource. You can learn more here:
