    Judgement issued -Civil Enforcement Limited 6th Mar 18 at 1:40 PM
    Hi Guys,

    i have read the post for newbies and other threads and examples im totally lost on what to do.

    First step was to acknowledge the claim, which I did - not sure if too late please see below;

    A claim was issued against you on 25/01/2018
    Your acknowledgment of service was submitted on 21/02/2018 at 16:18:02
    Your acknowledgment of service was received on 22/02/2018 at 08:02:49
    A judgment was issued against you on 01/03/2018 at 19:19:45

    now the only option is to have it set aside - is this the next step?

    sorry its all confusing to me and ive tried reading through others but im just not getting it.

    this is second Judgment issued against me and I am paying back 350 odd something I really cant afford another one!

    Thanks!

    You acknowledged but did you send in a defence?
    Idiots please note: If you intend NOT to read the information on the Notice of Allocation and hand a simple win to the knuckle dragging ex-clampers, then don't waste people's time with questions on a claim you'll not defend.

    Not sure you have any grounds for a set aside.
    Simply not responding as required may not be enough.

    Acknowledging the claim simply extends how long you have to send the court your defence

    You didnt send a defence, therefore the claimant was allowed to ask for a default judgement

    As you are within 1 month of the judgement I would just pay it. Your own inaction and inability to follow the procedure - which you are plainly told is: send in a defence - means you dont have any grounds that I can see to get a contested set aside, and there is no point in an uncontested one

    Your acknowledgement was also late, I reckon, so why did you sit on the form for so long?

    Did the claim issued on 25th Jan mention that further particulars will be sent at a later date?
