I have a quick question on the starting point of the 28 days to lodge a defence upon being served a statement of claim.

The case has 2 defendants, a company and an individual. The Company has been served but the individual is avoiding service. We are moving to an application for substituted service for the individual but can we still request a default judgement against the company 28 days from the service on them?

Magistrates court QLD, just a touch over the dollar value for small claims pushed us over.
