…I agree. While judges will typically grant at least one extension, nothing will happen if you don’t ask for it (i.e. file a motion). Normally you would want to file a motion for default, and possible come back to prove up your damages. As for the plaintiff’s complaint, that should be dismiss if the plaintiff does not show up. Lastly if the plaintiff is not responsive, but you feel the plaintiff might resurface, you might want to file request to admit prior to your motion for default judgment. But be careful, there are strict rules (see section 216 of the code) and if you don’t follow them, it will not work. Good luck.
