You need to contact an attorney or a legal aid organization in your state as soon as possible. Since you have been sued and have notice of the lawsuit you need to file a response in the court or settle it out of court. What you do not want to happen is allow the creditor to obtain a default. Since you already indicated they want to get a default it is in your best interest to file a response before your time runs out.
If you happen to settle the account make sure you get in writing the terms of the settlement. Make sure they also confirm that they will not be seeking a default judgment against you if you settle.
