Ask a Canada Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello! My name is Debra (formerly known as Legal Ease). Thank you for your question. I'm reviewing it now, and will post back again shortly.
I am sorry to hear this.
He was able to get the bailiff to assist because he has a judgment against you.
If you were not served with the claim and so the judgment was obtained by way of default then your best next step is to bring an urgent application to the court to set aside the default judgment based on the fact that you were not served.
So if you don't know how to do this yourself you need to get a lawyer to step in and assist you.
The lawyer will also be able to caution the bailiff about going ahead by making it clear you were never served with the claim.
You can contact the BC Branch of the Canadian Bar Association and use their Lawyer Referral Service. You will be given the name of a lawyer and can consult with the lawyer and the first half hour will be $25.The number is:(###) ###-####or 1.***-***-****.
Please feel free to post back with any follow-up questions you may have. If you don't have any then I hope I have earned a 5 star rating but if you don't feel that I have please don't hesitate to reply back and let me know what more I can do to assist you. Finally, please know that even after you rate me I will be here for you and you can ask follow-up questions if you think of them later on at no further charge of course.
Is there anything more I can help you with at this point in time?
