What is the difference between an agreed judgment and default judgment and will both have equal impact on credit ratings?
There's no difference in how the judgment is entered on a credit report. An agreed judgment indicates the debtor(s) appeared in court but did not have a valid defense as to why the debt was not owed, therefore a judgment was entered against him or her. A default judgment indicates the debtor(s) did not appear in court thereby forfeiting the right to defend the suit, resulting in a default judgment being entered in favor of… Read More

Service of summons must be perfected for it to ever come to a default judgment against the defendant.

Then papers are mailed to you indicating that garnishment will occur. If you are served with papers, make sure you respond to the… Read More

Is it legal for a home owner's association in Florida to file a default judgment against a person who was never approved by the association?
Homeowner associations are not in the business of 'approving' persons -- for any reason. If a default judgement has been filed against you, best practices dictate that you work with a common-interest community-savvy attorney to resolve the matter.

Yes, definitely.

Step 1. Find out how long your state affords defaulted defendants to seek vacation of the judgment. This information is usually found in your state's court rules. Get a copy of the rules and look under "Judgments" in the index. Step 2. If the time in which to vacate the judgment has not run, consider whether you can satisfy the elements necessary for vacation. Each state has its own requirements, but many states require a… Read More
The Plaintiff filed for Motion for default judgment and i received a notice that the motion for default judgment is hereby denied What does that mean to me being the defendant?
That normally means the plaintiff asked the judge for a judgment against you not on the facts of the case but just because you're in default (for failure to appear, plead, answer, or do something else you're supposed to do as a defendant in litigation wherever you are). And apparently the judge said no, and either the law required that notice be sent to you or the judge in his or her discretion ordered that… Read More
