If you have just been served with a foreclosure summons you only have 20 days to respond. If you do not respond, the lender will file a motion for a summary judgement which will bring the case before a judge. A hearing can be set as quickly as 20 -
In Summary: If you chose not to fight your foreclosure you may have as little as 60 days to stay in your home.
If you chose hire an attorney to fight on your behalf you will usually have a minimum of an extra 6 months to a year in the home. Some foreclosure cases have been defended for over 5 years and there is the rare possibility of getting the home for free and clear.

You can continue to live in your home even when it is in foreclosure without paying the mortgage. It is only when the home is officially sold at at a foreclosure auction that you may need to move.
