In my divorce, 30 days was almost up and my ex tried to file a hand written motion for extension of time... judge did not take any action because the rules of procedure was not complied with... but a week later gives him an extra 30 days to respond I'm so confused... my lawyer said he was in default and he would take the judgment to the judge and have him sign off on it..... will that give my ex and extra 30 days to fight me and gain Council???
Once an Order is entered, the opponent would have 30 days to file a post judgment motion such as a motion to set aside the final order. Typically, courts do not favor default judgments. Therefore, if your wife makes an appearance, the Court will likely set aside the order. Good luck.
Appreciate your frustration, but you MUST address these matters with the attorney representing you in the dissolution (divorce) proceeding. Only he/she knows all the facts and how they relate to the law. Trying to reply to yur question is unfair and dangerous with the limited facts presented and your existing representation. TALK TO YOUR LAWYER!!!
