Is there a specific question with which I could assist?
I can see why you're having problems with those, it really doesn't tell you much on which ti make a determination as to whether they are the same cases, what they are based on, etc.
As to what to file, you file a Motion to Vacate based on a lack of notice being a violation of your right to due process. You file the motion, explain why it is appropriate, and then have it served on the lawyers for the other side.
You can also ask the court for a setting at the same time you file your motion and then give the other side the date of the hearing in a letter served along with the motion or mailed separately. It is usually a good idea o set the hearing 45 days or so away.
You may want to consider hiring a lawyer to do this and then asking for your attorney's fees in the motion. Then, if it is granted, you will want to discuss with the lawyer whether the statute of limitations has passed and file a Motion for Summary Judgment or a Motion to Dismiss based on that since they were supposed to properly serve you within the statute of limitations as well.
No, we're not allowed to give specific referrals but you can find a lawyer to assist you by going to www.lawyers.com and in the section for Area of Practice enter Civil Litigation or Consumer Law. Either of those will have the skill set you need.
If your question has been answered then I'd offer my best wishes to you and ask that you please not forget to leave a Positive Rating so I receive credit for my work.
Of course, please feel free to ask any follow up questions in this thread. I want to be sure that all of your questions are answered. In addition, once you issue your Positive Rating the question will lock open and no longer time out so you can come back to it anytime in the future if you think of any follow ups.
Georgia doesn't have a central website that has forms for its courts so you may try Legalzoom.com or just run an internet search. I ran this search and you may want to go through these and look for one but these are usually drafted from scratch.
