I accessed a website in Alabama (family law) and despite never having been in the State, and the facts that I cannot receive legal aid and deadlines would be comprised due to the distance and time the papers would travel, the judge said service was perfected and that I had made a general appearance in the Court (the ARCP state that special appearances are not required). The Judge also published very private information into a court order (after my Motion to Dismiss was denied) and ordered me into the State of Alabama. I refused to enter the State due to terroristic threats made against me and I thought that was a means to justify her long-arm jurisdiction. This is a very complex legal issue. The default date was 03-20-13; I had a lot going on at the time but I need to know my options.
