I am assuming you got a summons? IF so, you can file an answer and the court will set a trial. If you have a subpoena, then that is a request for you to turn over documents, or appear at a trial. Once you file bankruptcy, that can stop any further action the creditor is taking. The lender, if they win at trial, can garnish wages (up to 15%) freeze your bank account, and put a lien on real estate if you own some. You can file bankruptcy before or after judgment, the debt would still be dischargeable. Otherwise, you'll need to take your chances in court.
