A: When filling out the CIV 100 form, if you are only requesting a default judgment, you do not need to sign under section #3 if the case is not related to landlord-tenant (unlawful detainer). You can leave that part blank.

Regarding the defendants, if the titles list "Does 1 to whatever," you should write the defendants' names exactly as titled, including the "Does 1 to [number]" if they are mentioned in the original complaint. This ensures consistency and clarity in your documentation.

Remember, accurate and complete information helps the court process your request more smoothly. If you have multiple unnamed defendants, keep their identification consistent with your initial filings to avoid any confusion.
