  • Where no acknowledgement of service or defence is received, applying for judgement in default

Matter usually take approximately 3-4 months from receipt of instructions from you to receipt of payment from the other side depending on whether or not it is necessary to issue a claim.  This is on the basis that the other side pays promptly on receipt of the judgement in default.  If enforcement action is needed, the matter will take longer to resolve.
