Setting aside a CCJ

If you have a County Court Judgement already, or if the court grants one before you are able to act, you can apply to have it set aside using the following guide.

Setting a judgement aside

You can apply to have a CCJ set aside using a form called n244. This usually costs £255 although you can use form ex160 for help with the fees if you are on a low income or benefits and supply a statement of support.
Send the completed n244 along with your ex160 and statement of support to the court.


You should also send a copy of the n244 the claimants. Do not include your statement of support or your ex160. Just send the n244


This will return it to the court where you can defend it. If they reissue a claim form come back to the group for help defending it.
