A default order of child support was set against me recently. My ex is addicted to medications and recently attempted suicide. Due to her instability, and her insistence that she would drop the case if I avoided going to court (and revealing her poor character), I believed it best to not attend court that day. I was naive, and wrong, and now seek to rectify the situation. I'm not against paying child support but it seems that I'm going to have a custody battle coming up soon and want everything to be handled there and then.
Should I explain the situation to the judge in the Motion? What is most important to include?
