I am involved in a family law case where the respondent was found to be in default. I don't have an attorney. There were additional paperwork that I had to file after the respondent was found in default. The court clerks informed me that I don't have to serve these documents to respondent since default means respondent is not part of case any more. Is this correct?
If a default judgment has been entered; you still need to get a specific relief order. You will not have to serve your mtion for that.
