    Once the request to enter default has been granted, you will proceed with filling out the judgment and related documents. Your judgment must mirror your petition since the other party was only given notice to what's on your petition.

    You should have filed the original, had someone over the age of 18 (not you) personally hand another copy to the other party, and you should have kept a copy for your records. If the other party does not serve you with a response within 30 days of service, you can then file a request to enter default.

    You should reply and include your declaration where you state all the facts and reasons why you are opposed to requested visitation. The judge will base his/her interest on the best interest of the child.

    How much deposit did you give? Did you pay this month's rent? The reason that I am asking is that the management company might try to put up a fight. However, since you are on a month-to-month lease, only a 30-day notice is required.

    It seems like you are uncertain what to do with the house. You have to do what works best for you. No one can tell you what to do with your house. If you want to keep it and feel you can maintain current with the mortgage payments, then accept it. If you don't want it, then tell the judge how you want the house to be divided. Maybe your wife doesn't want the house, that is the reason she wants everything else. Does the value of everything else add up to the equity you have in your house?

    Since it is a default judgment, the judgment must reflect what you stated in the petition. Otherwise, it will be rejected again. What did you indicate on the petition regarding spousal support?

    Since you have no idea where he lives, then personal service of the summons & petition is impossible. However, that doesn't mean that you cannot proceed with your divorce case. There are other means of effectuating the service without personally handing him the documents. One of the manners is service by publication, where you would put a notice in a local newspaper, in the area that you last knew he resided in. Then if he doesn't respond, you can request to proceed y default.

  10. Sole Custody

    By proving to a judge that it has been difficult to execute the joint legal custody arrangement, then the judge can rule in your favor in granting sole legal custody. Does the father have any reasons for not signing to renew your daughter passport? Nonetheless, a passport is a necessity for traveling. Maybe his reasoning is to prevent you from traveling with your daughter. However, if he does not consent to you traveling with your daughter, you can also obtain the court's permission to do so.
