A: You might have passed the deadline to request Default. I would suggest that you go to the Court, and find out if the case has been dismissed for inactivity. If it has, then ask the procedure to reinstate. If it has not, then ask if the Court has the forms to proceed with a Default.

However, depending what is involved with your divorce (e.g. assets, debts, children), then it might be best to contact an attorney to review your options and to be sure you are protected in the future. Good luck.
