    That is a huge subject and it's not possible to explain the use of a single word like that. Why don't you try to use the word "then" in some example sentences and then we will comment on your use?

    Please see my amendments above.

    Probably 'in that case'. More context would help.

    In the right context, that's fine.

    - My sister has my mobile phone.
    - Why don't you go and get it back from her.
    - I can't. I don't know where she is.
    - Let's go and find her then.
