I do understand about getting the default set aside, but after that happens and we start over I will request a hearing and that is why I want the information for the small claim case hearing in the near future. I want to be prepared this planitiff is going for the max. amount and she is a single mother of (4) kids I could get a soft Judge. Plaintiff is very good at getting other to believe her ( she is a nightmare for me)
