Customer Question

my friend was served with a civil harassment with restraining order. court date was 9/23/16. Form CH-709 said to appear at 8:30 AM dept 1 3341 Power Inn Rd. That's where we went. Turns out we were supposed to be at court house downtown 9th street. By the time we arrived at 9:20 AM case already done and judgement gave everything plaintiff wanted including paying them $8,000 for lawyer.
JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?
Customer: I was advised to fill out a SC-135 Motion to vacate Judgement to get a court date so we can present our side
JA: Has anything been filed or reported?
Customer: we are in CA Sacramento
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: I was going to file the motion today 30 day deadline will be Sunday
