What does this rule returnable mean? What precautions shall I take?

I am interested to know what this rule returnable is as well.  I just got off the phone with someone from the Montgomery County Court House.  She said that my hearing was postponed pending the outcome of a paternity test, and there was a rule retunable date of July 11, 2011.  What does that mean?

A "rule returnable" means the court entered a rule upon the opposing party asking them to reply by a certain date if they have anything to say on the matter. It's a formal way of calling a hearing.
