Question by  Vignesh (24)

What is the best way to compose a letter to a judge asking him to set aside a default?

I want to sound proper and needy at the same time.

You don't compose a letter, you file a Motion to Waive Default. And if you don't know the proper format of a motion, ask a lawyer.

The most important thing is NOT to try and sound like you're using the write legal language. The judge also does NOT want to hear a story to make him feel sorry for you. Just clearly state the facts as to why the default should not have been granted.

It needs to be a hardship letter. Write how much you realize the impact of your inability to pay the debt but cannot due to your inability to pay.
