Once the copies have been served on the defendant(s), the defendant(s) will have 14 days to file an answer. If they fail to do so you can ask the court to enter a default judgment in your favor for the amount claimed. The Application for Default form can be down loaded from the "Civil" section of the eforms site listed above.
If the defendant(s) file an answer you will then be given a trial date. At the trial you will be allowed to present the case and submit the matter to the Judge for entry of a final judgment. If you are not satisfied with your judgment then you may appeal your case to the circuit court and have a new trial. If you are satisfied with your result you can contact me and I will help you collect your money. Good Luck! and call us if you need any help.
