My minor child's father filed for custody on (07/15/13). It said I have 20days to respond on the document. However, from the date above until (09/03/13) when I checked clark county courts website the documents showed as unserved. I now have a temporary protection order(for my minor child and I) which was granted and served to my child's father as of (09/09/13). Which he has violated several times! He was served in the family court office when he went down to report serving me with the custody papers on (09/02/13). The website now reads I was served (09/02/13) and it also has the word Default under it. My question to you is are the papers still valid being nearly served 2months after the date on the documents I have. Also can you please look online at my case and explain to me what the Default means? I have to go to court to extend my protection order on (10/01/13) and I am very confused. My case number is as follows: D-13-482680-C
