LADYLAWYER : 1) You can file a motion to set aside and vacate default judgment. You do not need representation to do this. You need to contact the clerk of court where the judgment was filed and see if they have the forms available for you there. If not, you can prepare your own motion. There are different examples online. They vary a little bit, but as long as your court doesn't have any local rules regarding their structure, you should be ale to use any of them as a base.
LADYLAWYER : 2) I will need more information to properly answer. Who was the judgement against--you or the corporation? Was the card in your name as an agent for the corporation or how was it titled?
LADYLAWYER : 3) There's a saying that you can't squeeze blood out of turnip. If you have no income or assets, there's nothing for them to get from you. Now, the judgement they hold is good for up to 20 years so they can keep trying to get something from you for up to that long. The judgement is also on your public record and can hurt your credit. The best thing to do is to have the judgment set aside if you can. But remember, just having it set aside is the first step. Ou still have to go back and defend yourself against the plaintiff and you need to have a winning case in order not to get another judgment against you.
