MOTION TO VACATE JUDGMENT
Forcible/Special Detainer

MARICOPA COUNTY JUSTICE COURT

A MOTION TO VACATE JUDGMENT can be filed by either party to vacate a default judgment or a judgment following a hearing or trial. If the time to appeal the judgment has expired, the Motion to Vacate Judgment must be served on the other party in the same manner as if serving a summons and complaint and proof of service must be filed with the court. If the time to appeal the judgment has not expired the Motion to Vacate Judgment may be served by first class mail. An appeal cannot be taken from a default judgment. If you want your case reviewed by the Superior Court you must first file a Motion to Vacate Judgment. Any appeal will then be based on the court ruling on the Motion. If this is your first filing in the case, you will be required to pay an answer fee. The opposing party has TEN days (or the expedited time set by the court) after service of this motion to file a written response. If no response is received, the court will consider the motion and will enter an Order. If you want to stay enforcement of the judgment you must post a supersedeas bond. The stay becomes effective when the bond is posted. The supersedeas bond will be set by the court.

Please STOP...
If there has not yet been a judgment rendered from the court.
