This question was posted five months ago; I sure hope you got an attorney. You have a limited amount of time to set aside a default judgment but, perhaps fortunately in your case, it is not difficult to set aside a default judgment, particularly if there is anything unfair about the terms of the judgment.

If you have not moved forward with this already, you need to do so promptly. I would suggest that, at the earliest possible opportunity, you meet with an attorney to discuss your options.
