Q: How can I fight a final order of divorce after it's not appealable and order to vacate was denied

I have a final order for dissolution of marriage because of a default judgement. I was never served and motioned the court to vacate and it was denied. Best part that I was never married with the person because it is a void marriage. She was still married when we got married. Motioned the court to vacate with all the evidence and still got denied. How can I fight this final order. I can not appeal anymore cause it happened a year ago

A: Your question answers itself: you didn't appeal in a timely manner.
