This past January, I was involved in a car accident. I went to the emergency room and attended all of my therapy sessions. I call the law office every so often for updates.

NO, as Default Judgments are frequently set aside for little or no reason. Your attorney may be pursuing another method of receiving money prior to going through the motions of what would probably be set aside later.
You do not ask a specific question- but it sounds like you need to file for divorce. The divorce Judge will make a division of the property ( if you are paying for it, you are likely to get it) and set up a parenting plan for your children and set child support. Consult an experienced divorce...Read more »

Sorry, but you haven't provided enough information to understand your situation. Please explain what you mean by "wholesaling." Generally, a seller can sell to whoever they want. Buyer and seller are free to agree on all kinds of terms.
Time limits apply, so you will need to act promptly. If this occurred recently, you can file a motion ( a written request) with the to set aside ( un-do) the dismissal).

In Tennessee only a licensed attorney may represent someone in court. The only exception to this is that a party may act pro se. Any other non-attorney would be committing unauthorized practice of law.

You might run afoul of rules or laws against the unauthorized practice of law.
