Have you found yourself in a situation where a default judgment was entered against you without the opportunity to present your side in court? There are options available, including the possibility of challenging or revoking the judgment.
Guilty by default verdict
To be eligible for a judgment revocation, you must have been found guilty by default. This essentially means that if you paid your fine or admitted guilt voluntarily, it’s not possible to later request a judgment revocation if you decide to contest the violation.
A request for revocation of judgment can only be granted if the judge is convinced that you had substantial reasons preventing you from presenting your defence. For instance, not receiving a notice of the hearing qualifies as a substantial reason.

Should the judge grant your request, our team of traffic lawyers can help you prepare for a trial to present your defence or explore the possibility of negotiating a favourable resolution.
