Recommended Posts

​ Hello,

Can someone please advise me what steps should I take next.


 


 


Thanks

It is difficult to remove a default judgment.  This is from Mass Legal Help.  You can fill out the form.  You need to have a good reason why you missed court.  If you are low income, you may find a lawyer there to help.  Also, I think Harvard Law School runs a legal aid clinic.  Do a google search for "Harvard Law School Consumer Law Clinic" and see if someone there can assist you.

 

 

Motion to Remove Default - If the court enters a judgement against you because you did not do something you were supposed to, you can file a motion to remove default to ask the judge to reopen your case. See What is a Default Judgment and what do I do? doc.gif pdf.gif rtf-icon.jpg

See if the Consumer Law Clinic at Harvard/Wilmer Hale can help you.

You didn't say what the court date you missed was about.  If the law firm is asking for a default judgment because of whatever it was you missed, you will have to give the judge a good reason why you missed it.  If, on the other hand,  it is just a Case Management Conference about your case, then you will basically be asked if you want to settle the case or if you want to go to trial.  I think you would be well-advised to see if anyone at the link I gave you can assist you, if nothing at least with some legal advice.
