Under very limited circumstances and within limited time frames a Default Judgment may be set aside or reversed by a court. There has to be some excusable neglect or an irregularity in the proceedings for a court to even consider a request to set aside a Default Judgment and the request to set must usually be made within one year of the judgment. This is a limited remedy and should not be considered as an alternative to timely responding to the lawsuit.
