Not knowing what type of suit it is, you should know generally you have 28 days after service of a summons and complaint to file an answer with the clerk of courts where the suit was started. You must also mail a copy of your answer to the attorney or party who filed the case. You mentioned discovery. Discovery of the facts of a case usually occurs after the answer is filed. If you feel you can't prepare an answer on your own, you should consult with a local attorney. Also if the suit is big enough or if you have insurance, you should speak to an attorney about it.
