When you recieve a statutory demand there is a process under the High Court Rules to make an applcation to set this aside. This is done by an application with affidvaits in support, which are filed in the High Court and served on the claimant. The court allocates a date for the first chearing, and they have to respond with a notice of opposition and an affidavit. The court will then allocate a hearing date. You will likely need to have a lawyer to do this, and you have 10 working days to get this filed and served=the time period is important. This will enable you to defend the claim in the demand
