I argued in the motion that the service was improper, and that the default was taken against me through both my surprise and excusable neglect, and there is enough evidence in the motion to prove that the medical bill was unfair and was disputed from the very start. I filed motion to set aside default by the clerk, answer and counterclaim, and motion to vacate court judgment. What else should I do to make my case stronger when I go before the judge, considering the fact that none of the said documents I have timely filed was seen by the judge due to the pending fee waiver, and the default clerk failed to tell me my documents would not be routed to the assigned judge's chambers until the fee waiver hearing. The dept. supervisor was not able to clarify filing procedure with fee waiver.
