Hello and thank you for your question.
Once a default judgment has been entered you can file a Motion to Set Aside/Motion to Vacate the Judgment.
California Code of Civil Procedure (CCP), sections 473(b), 476(d), and 473.5
http://law.onecle.com/california/civil-procedure/473.5.html this link provides the permitted grounds for seeking to have the judgment set aside.
This is a link for a sample of the form for Ventura County http://www.ventura.courts.ca.gov/local_forms/vn147.pdf
Thank you for your question. Please do not hesitate to ask me any additional questions that you may have regarding this matter.
I am sorry I misunderstood. Now you know what to do if it has been entered. Hopefully it has not.
No there must be a hearing. You could call the clerk of the court and ask them if the motion was granted and if not when was or is the court date.
Please let me know if you additional questions for me regarding this matter.
