You cannot get a default judgment unless 28 days have passed since the defendant was served with the Statement of Claim.
If you did not serve the defendant yourself, you can find out when they were served by:
You can fill out the Notice of Motion form in neat handwriting in blue or black pen. You can also fill it out on your computer screen. The guide
Completing Approved Forms (52 kb) has instructions on how to do this.
You must file the Notice of Motion within 14 days of signing it.
You must file the forms within nine months of filing the Statement of Claim. The court will automatically dismiss your claim after nine months if you and/or the defendant have filed nothing further in the case.
The judgment debtor can apply at any time to set aside a default judgment by showing appropriate grounds. For more information, see
Responding to an application to set aside default judgment.
