What can I do about a Request For Entry of Default when I was never served?

Los Angeles, CA |

I received Request for Entry in the mail but never was served and I can not get Proof of Service to find out who they served. Also,I am afraid they will take my retirement.

  1. You need to file a motion to vacate the judgment.


  2. You can file a Motion to Set Aside he Default. Most attorneys offer free consultations. I suggest that you take advantage of that to determine your options.
