    How long to set aside a CCJ

    How long to set aside a CCJ 23rd May 17 at 1:51 PM
    Hi everyone
    Firstly, thank you for all the brilliant information available on the forum about CCJ's and getting them set aside. I have a CCJ at my old address on my credit file. Today I submitted forms to the court to get the judgement set aside. In your experience, how long does it take the court to process this and make a decision?

    Many thanks in advance
    Tom

    They will arrange a hearing at your local court in the coming weeks, in June/July, which is when you have to show:

    - that you acted quickly and didn't receive the court claim, hence the CCJ was not your 'fault' and you weren't given a fair chance to defend,

    and

    - that, given that chance to defend now, you will have good prospects of success (that's where your Witness Statement/prepared defence comes in and it MUST be good, so look at the defences in post #2 of the NEWBIES thread).

    Be warned set aside usually works but not always, if ill-prepared:

    That's rare but don't be like that person. Get it set aside, with thorough reasons for a defence, as most cases we see are.

    Thanks. I'm very much looking forward to my day in court and I have followed all the brilliant advice on the forum. I wasn't expecting the court to move that quickly, but I guess £255 is a good motivator.

    I'll keep everyone posted on this thread on my progress.

    I've not won yet, but I do look forward to having my day in court. Receiving a CCJ at my previous address was quite worrying to start off with, but after lots of research on the forums I'm confident.
