Purpose of form:

To request in writing that the court issue a judgment in a civil case or a garnishment case when the defendant or garnishee has failed to file an answer.

The clerk of court and judicial assistants of magistrate court routinely monitor the status of cases to determine if they are eligible for a default judgment. Therefore, it is not absolutely necessary that a plaintiff request that the case be reviewed for this purpose.

The prevailing party must request that a writ of fi.fa. be issued and pay the requisite recording fee for such issuance.
