How to file a motion to vacate default judgement in Pa
Asked Nov 24, 2009, 03:04 PM
I received the papers stating that I was being sued in June... 3 days later I received a letter stating that a hearing was scheduled in Nov. so I never answered the summons (if that's what it is called)... I was under the impression that I had a hearing... I called to confirm my hearing date and time... a day before and was told there was a default judgement entered in aug. I'm trying to get the judgement oerturned so that I may defend myslef in court but the prothonataries office told me that since I am not the plaintiff I can not have the judgement vacated or set aside... I di have a very winable case but I think I've hit a brick wall... any ideas?
