Yes, you need a lawyer. There's no way for us to know what's going on in the court, based just on a few lines on the internet.

You will need an attorney. Setting aside a default is not a simple task. As an aside, please know that you filing a motion with the court and the clerk docketing it, does not mean anyone will set that motion for hearing. You would need to contact the judicial officer who heard the case and who will hear your motion to set the hearing. You need to know that the DORCSE office enjoys a special set of rules for setting hearings. They are particular to each county so you will want to address that and your cost question with the experienced local family law attorney with whom you consult.
Best of luck.

You need a lawyer! Here's why. The income that will be imoputed to you minimum will be around $25,000. That's going to result in a child support amount of $4,000 per year (approx). How old is the child, four? How many years to majority. 14 years times 4000 (for example) = $56,000. Looking at a hypothestical obligation that will come out of your salary, tax refund, social security, etc., how can you even think that you should not have a lawyer now? The procedural issues and disestablishmnet of paternity are beyond the scope of this site. This is one of the few situations where it is penny wise and hundreds of pounds foolish to fail to get your own counsel!
