Video 2 - Defending a Court Case
If you’ve been served with a Claim and Statement of Claim, you have 28 days to file a Defence. There are special rules about the drafting of a Defence. If you have a cause of action against the plaintiff, you can bring a Counterclaim. If you do not file a Defence, the plaintiff can obtain a Default Judgment against you. You can apply to the court to set aside a Default Judgment. If you own a property you may have to respond to an Enforcement Warrant.
