The defence you have to advance is that payment has been made of the sum sued for. You don't have to say when. You can advance a reason for not defending as not receiving the papers because you had moved but that is not a defence to the case. It's just the reason you didn't get the papers. The answer to whether a charge for payment has been served has to be "no". If you answer "yes" the application for recall is out of time and incompetent. I hope that helps. Please leave a positive rating so that I am credited for my time.
