A DEFAULT JUDGMENT or DEFAULT CONVICTION may be entered against you if you fail to respond to a ticket or Notice of Liability or miss a scheduled court date. You can apply to have the Default vacated, and the charge rescheduled for a conference or a trial. An administrative fee applies to the processing of all motions to vacate dispositions – the cost is $125 to process a written motion, and $50 to process an oral application made upon an appearance at TPVA.
Your motion to the Court must include:
A valid reason for your failure to appear on your scheduled court date; and
A meritorious defense to the original charge(s).
The Court may grant your application if satisfied with your motion. In such case, you will be notified as to the future court date.
