Vernon, NJ asked in Contracts for New Jersey

Q: Approximately how long does it take to get a docket number for a civil case over $30K?

Thank you so much for you time? The case is Pro Se against my mortgage servicer- I filed electronically in Essex County NJ Civil

Wondering too what is best way to deliver the defendant’s paperwork - priority mail, FEDEX or service processor. My apologies - I hope the 2nd question is not an issue. It did not fit in the above question box

A: Trying to represent yourself in a mortgage foreclosure defense case against trained mortgage foreclosure attorneys is not going to work out well. You need to really retain an experienced mortgage foreclosure defense and bankruptcy attorney. Failure to do so is a virtual guarantee of losing your case. Abe Lincoln stated that an attorney who represents himself had a fool for a client. If you are not an experienced mortgage foreclosure defense and bankruptcy attorney you are no match for the foreclosure attorneys.
