I have been sued in KY but I live in Ohio.
Well, if you are being sued in KY but live in OH then you will have to travel to KY for the hearing. You can represent yourself, you don't need a lawyer. If you do not show up you could be held in contempt of court.
If you do not have a permanent address in Kentucky, you can request a change of venue. Your defense can consist of a letter to the judge or you presenting a statement of facts in person at the trial.
After being served file your response or appear on your court date. When you get to court have all of your evidence in order and present it to the judge.
Generally speaking, you have to be served with a lawsuit in order for it to be a valid. But contact a Kentucky lawyer to find out what your responsibilities are in that state.
You show up at your court hearing and fill out papers that indicate that you are representing yourself. I would suggest at least having a court appointed lawyer though.
You would need to file an answer to the lawsuit in court. You can do this by obtaining the required forms from the court. They can probably mail it to you since you are out of state.
