You don't file a counterclaim for arbitration.  You file a Motion to Compel Arbitration.

Filing a counterclaim would be invoking the court's jurisdiction, which you don't want to do, as that may waive your arbitration rights.

Not in Georgia.  However, a counter claim will make arguing for a MTC a lot harder.

So, all I have to do is deny debt on the answer form?

If you are in Magistrate Court:  yes.  All you need to do is check deny and turn it in to the clerk of the court.  They will stamp it and give you a copy back.  Then within the next 14-30 days you will have a trial date set.  The court will notify you and the Plaintiff of the trial date by mail.  

Magistrate Court does not allow discovery or filing motions in advance so you do not need to worry about that.  Start studying the arbitration threads and drafting a MTC.  You will need 3 copies on the day of trial.

Also, they lied by stating the served the summons to me. The description is not me and technically the address they say they served  me at I don't live there.

They served your mother and in GA that is legal.

I haven't lived there since 2016 but I haven't had my mail forwarded because I rarely get mail there. My mother stays at the address. 

What can I do regarding the not being properly served?

If you still live in Fulton County it is pointless.  They will simply re-serve the summons.  If you never updated your address with the post office or your drivers license then under the law they did serve you at your last known address.

At this point, I don’t know what can I do to win my case. Any suggestions?

Arbitration.  A MTC granted by the Magistrate will cause them to drop it.
