It means that the defendant will need to file an Answer, or a dispositive Motion. The defendant may also need to appear and verbally deny the allegations of the petition. If they fail to do these, the Plaintiff may get a judgment by Default. If you're a defendant that has been served, you should consult directly with a civil practice attorney in your area. Many offer a free or low cost initial consultation.

Good luck
