Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

You realize that none of the experts from this site are allowed by state law to represent anyone from this site. We can provide information only, not representation. If you just want information, we can do that, but you would need to hire a local attorney for appeal.

that is fine but can you let me know how much time we have since they already got a judgement on the case
Real Estate Lawyer: Law Educator, Esq., Lawyer replied 2 years ago
Thank you for your reply.
You have 10 days from entry of judgment to file a notice of appeal and a motion to vacate judgment and then if they do not vacate the judgment, which they likely will since you were not served, you have 30 days to complete the appeal. Since you just learned of this you have to file your motion to vacate default as soon as possible.

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.
