I will be helping you today. What is your query?
Don’t worry about the pop-up mentioning a phone call – this is an automatic offer made by the system, giving you the opportunity to pay extra to discuss things over the phone. However, it is entirely optional and if you just ignore it and close it down you will not be charged extra and we will just continue in writing at no extra cost.

OK, it appears to me that the Court has issued a Judgement against you. The first thing that I would do is telephone the Court to confirm this. You will then need to make an application to Court to have the Judgement set aside.
Please see below the form you will need to complete and submit to Court along with the relevant Court fee which is £255.00:
The Court will take into account a number of factors including the promptness of the application. This is not a specific requirement but promptness carries a great deal of weight. You will need to complete the form I provided you above and set out the Grounds in which you wish to have the Judgement set aside. The Court have the power to do this if it appears that you have a real prospect of defending the claim or there is some other good reason as to why the judgement should be set aside.
Yes, you can apply for help regarding Court fees. Here is the link to this information for you:
Yes, you should make the application before then which will then result in a Hearing taking place which you will have the opportunity to make your case.
I do hope this clarifies, will that be all today? :)
It's a pleasure. It appears that you do have a strong case to make and it would take a hard nosed Judge to refuse such an application on the basis on which you have explained above.
I do hope I have helped today.
