(Motion To Vacate)

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:

  1.  A valid reason for your failure to appear on your scheduled court date; and
  2. 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.
