Affidavit To Vacate a Default Judgment in a Consumer Debt Case

This free and easy program makes papers that help you tell a judge why you missed your court date or didn't answer a complaint in a consumer debt case. When you finish this program, you can print a paper called an "Affidavit in Support of an Order to Show Cause," which you must give to the clerk in Civil Court. The papers ask the judge to let you come back to court.
