How a default judgment is entered

It is believed that Judges make rulings and orders, which they do, but most people do not realize that the attorneys prepare the documents and submit those for the Judge to implement or make those orders and rulings binding. That includes orders on a judgment by default. This video describes the process and what is involved to take a judgment by default.

  1. I’m currently on probation with getting this default judgement be a violation of it?

    So as soon as I got served I contacted the creditor and I set up a payment arrangement not knowing that they would be still putting a default judgment against me I thought I was doing the right thing at the right time. But I would like to reverse that if I can and turn in my papers and show up to court that day so that I don’t have a default judgment. I was just trying to get it out-of-the-way and pay what I could. Not realizing that I messed up and answering but that’s what I wanted. Of course they were just trying to get money out of me as soon as they could. This is my first time ever dealing with anything like this

  2. My lawyer sent the questions to the defendant and they didn’t answer..
    Now my lawyer sent to the court Plaintiff’s motion to compel discovery….can you explain me this…and what is the next step in my case… I’m suing, but my lawyer really has bad communication with me… really I don’t know why I picked the wrong people to do the Job

  3. Wished i had seen this last month.

    Were loosing our home and all our possessions in 3 days time.

    2019 Life was great.
    Nice home , lovely wife, good times.

    Then it all Changed.
    Just like that.
    Because my wife was such a caring kind of woman
    She opted to Stand up for a former colleague.
    Against the bullies.
    The bulling just shifted to her.

    My wife has developed mental health issues after years of abuse at work.

    Resulting in having to give up work.
    1 less wage coming in.

    After our £13,000.00 savings dwindled paying bills etc
    Bills keep coming .
    The van i had recently purchased. Packed in
    Didnt have the funds to fix it.
    Demand upon demand,
    I got scared of opening letters.
    We have sat in darkness for nearly 3 years now.
    Never open the curtains anymore for being scared .
    Everytime i have to leave the house. I fear im going to come home to my wife lyin dead.

    Were just existing.
    I now feel like my wife .
    We would be less problematic if we just weren’t here.
    I cant see past this.
    Once we lose everything in few days.
    We will have nothing.
    Become Homeless.

    Im a proud man,
    Reduced to the acceptance of our fate to be.
    The day will come, we will be gone.

    2 and half years till mortgage cleared.
    Thousands paid in interest, from money that was created by typing the amount on the computer.

    So never even existed to begin with.

  4. I was wondering if I receive a judgment that I wanted to collect on but I just realized that the judgement isn’t entered in his legal name? (Bob instead of Robert.) Can I enter the name he goes by and his legal name on the forms when filing with the county? Is their somewhere I can add it and have the judgement recognized by his legal name? Thanks in advance. I can’t really afford to hire an attorney but I’m willing to put in the time.

  5. It’s more than a month my lawyer sent the default judgment to the courthouse. "The defendant didn’t answer the questions" in the 30 days that the judge gave him to answer. What’s the next step in this process ?….. I’m in Broward Florida

  6. Trolls are invading your channel, Its so pathetic realy, they cant think for themself instead blindly belive everything this stupid streamer says.

  7. I was served at my home for a lawsuit at my home and I then went to the courthouse to answer them. I filed the answer with a fee waiver: however, even though I had no income because of my contract work the court denied the waiver. It was then some 4 months before I had recived in the mail from the plaintiff an Application for Summery Judgement, I then went back to the court and filed the fee waiver a second time and this time was granted while I was standing there with the clerk. I then filed two motions. The first was to Notice of Motion to Compel Set Aside the judgement and Default and Quash Any Writ of Possession and was given a date for me to appear at a later date and the other Motion to Compel was for Arbitration. This is a clause in the contract and when I had asked the plaintiff about that they just got quite and would not say anything or reply, so I filed that motion and was given a date much later to appear for it. So my question would be " Being that the Court gave me those dates and nothing of mine as of this day has been siezed, or gasrnished am I still in good position for the later date for Arbitration with the court with the situation as it is now ? ".

  8. I understand the process after watching many of your videos. Thank you.
    I filed a complaint against the U$ gub’ment, waited the required 60 days then moved for Default under 55(d). The U$ 4ttorney immediately emailed me asking if I would voluntarily withdraw the Motion For Default Entry, else he would file Ex Parte, a Motion to Vacate. I did not withdraw.
    The judge’s local rule concerning ex parte motions requires the U$ 4ttorney to email the motion to opposing counsel (me) immediately, and upon receipt, I would have two court days to answer.
    The U$ 4ttorney did not copy me in the motion, two days later the judge vacated the default entry unopposed.
    Today I filed (within 10 days of the order to vacate) an Opposition to the Vacate Order citing both the judges local rule whereby I was excluded from service of the Motion to Vacate so was unable to respond within two court days; and citing also that in the U.S. District Court, Southern District of California General Order 550 amends FRCP Rule 4 et al. to confirm that all registered users of PACER agree to accept service when the Clerk of the Court enters a document into the system.
    Did the U$ 4ttorney lie to the judge so the judge would vacate the Entry of Default? This would seem improper and unethical, nes pas?
    Can the Vacated Entry of Default be restored if the U$ 4ttorney ignored the judges local rules. After all, I was not given fair opportunity to present a counter arguement under the rules. Procedural due process question, I believe.

  9. Hello I had a bit of a different question I wanna default judgment in the paper which is an affidavit and request for default judgment is a little confusing saying pretty much they have to answer within 15 days of the date of the fall defendant was served personally or notoriously on, that’s the date and proof of service was filed with Magistrate court on the date again. Do you know if they’re speaking of the day he was served at first or do I need to have him served again after the default was granted in court

  10. Narcissists are always on the hunt for something they are never going to find. They pretend to be someone else to ensnare the victim with deception, lies, pretending to feel one way, when they feel the complete opposite. A Narcissist should not be trusted and are often toxic with an excessive need for admiration, disregard for others feelings, an inability to handle any criticism and a sense of entitlement. I used to think that love could cure anything but it only fed my narc’s enormous ego. It is important to be wise when dealing with a narcissist and I’m glad that 69unlockers helped cloned my husband’s phone. I got access to all his dealings both on phone and social media without touching his phone. All I did was share his phone number with 69unlockers and I was able to read both his new and deleted messages from my phone through a remote link to a programmed App containing cloned cell information. My husband was a cheating Narcissist and I’m glad to find out all his secrets and infidelity with the help of 69unlockers. I’m finally going through divorce with lots of evidence against him. I read all his deleted and recent chats on Whatsapp, Facebook,Wechat,Viber,Linkdn,Skype,Twitter and Instagram. You can contact this great hackers via 69unlockers ▪️com and I believe I’m saving a soul with this message just as I was saved…….
