    A friend I knew was having finace problems, but I had no idea it involved their house. She a couple of us yesterday at a party they might sell their house and move. A friend told me she thought the house is being foreclosed on. So I looked it up, and it might be.
    What does PRAECIPE TO VACATE JUDGMENT FILED mean?
    I relly would like to help my friend out if I can.

    Exactly what it means depends on where you are - different states have different rules. But basically filing a praecipe is just a way of asking the court for something. In this case, it means somebody asked the court to vacate a judgment. Who, and what judgment, and how this is related to the house, is unclear.

    OK. So the mortgage company is seeking to vacate a judgment. What judgment, and how it is related to the house, is unclear.
