File a Request For Default with the court. Hopefully you also filed and FL-160 Community Property and FL-160 Separate Property and your FL-150 Income and Expense Declaration. If you did, then try to work out an agreement with your ex on all of the issues. If that is successful, then file what is called a judgment package with the court. Use the free court srvices to help you on this. Also you were supposed to file a Proof Of Service after your husband got served and hopefully you did it correctly.
