    Generally there is no fee or court cost for filing an answer. On the other hand if you're going to the court for trial it is quite possible that unless you have a good defense you will be found liable, although generally in civil cases there is a 21 day appeals period during which the execution of the judgment is stayed. One answer short, your question does not provide sufficient information to allow a firm answer. The correct answer is that you really need to see counsel to determine what you are getting yourself into.
