Good morning. How did you find out about this judgment? So you wrote this employee a check and it bounced and they sued you?

I got the judgement in the mail

Thank you. If you were never served or aware of this, you have a basis to file a motion to vacate the judgment. If they sued you, you should have been served and placed on notice and given a chance to respond and defend this. Moreover, once the check bounced, the employee should have simply contacted you about this and you could have issued a new check and resolved this. The clerk of court may have the forms for you to file and I have provided a link below that also cites the rules, which would allow it.

I own a transportation company in which Im supposed to have proccesing agents in all 48 states but Ive never been contacted by them either

You would have been served by a process server or your agent would have received it. You can look online or in the court file and see what the service of process says as well, to see what happened.

ok thank you where can i search to find it with case number?

It would be in the county where the case was filed and it should be in the judgment.

You are welcome. Please let me know if there is anything else, as I would be happy to respond. If not, please remember to rate my help at this time at the top of this page, prior to leaving, so I can receive the proper credit, for our time together. A 5 STAR rating is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
