Hi thank you for your message, yes you can apply to get it set aside. You can apply in writing to the court dealing with your judgment to have it set aside. You’ll need to contact the court to confirm the correct form to be used as they will have the most up to date records locally. Once the court receives your application, they’ll set a hearing. You’ll need to check with your creditor and the court if you’re expected to attend. In essence, you can argue that the original forms leading to the judgement were not correctly served and therefore the judgement set aside. The judgement will automatically be removed from your credit file, but it might take a month for this to happen. It’s worth checking your credit file 6-8 weeks after the judgment has been set aside to make sure it’s no longer there.

Hi Gary apologies for the delay, when they say your jurisdiction you are based in Dublin is that right?
Apologies, I see you live in the UK but the case was in Dublin. So where do you live in England?
Hi thank you for your message, I apologise I am struggling to establish how you would establish which court the matter is being enforced in. You should perhaps contact the court in Dublin to ask which court they have referred the enforcement too.
