Overturning Default Judgement

In a recent case, our client had a Judgement entered against him by a former employer. Our client had not been served with the documents, and as such was unaware that there was a case against him.

When the application to overturn the Default Judgement was heard, the other party argued they had personally hand delivered the notice, which would have satisfied the requirement of personal service. On grilling by our litigator, however, it became clear service had never happened.

There are very strict rules about how proceedings need to be conducted. Not understanding those rules can harm your case, so too often self-litigants are left feeling as though they have not been fairly treated by the Courts, when in reality there just hadn’t been any legal guidance about what can, and can’t, be done.

We’re litigation experts. Don’t be left without the right advice.
