A default judgment could occur in which you are awarded all that you have asked for in the complaint. However, the judge is still going to review that judgment to make sure the requests are compliant with the law.
When he sells it i would get half. He's in the process of selling. He probably doesn't remember that at all. My name is not on the deed and the house is paid for. I can get a quick deed. Do I remind him of the divorce papers or what?
There are some larger issues with a traffic ticket that old. Specifically, whether you have a warrant for that ticket and whether any evidence even exists anymore to prove or disprove the claim. As soon as the case is opened, yes, you could likely dispute.
