You could try filing a few different things, though I'm not sure any will help you:
a. If you weren't properly served with notice of the original hearing date, you could file a motion to set aside the order for lack of proper notice and service.
b. If you weren't in court on the day of the trial for a good reason, you could file what is suggested in "a" above asking for a new hearing and stating what you good cause is for not showing up (i.e. in the hospital, in an accident, etc.)
The problem is that if you don't show up at a hearing just because (as opposed to not knowing about it or being unable to be there through no fault of your own), the court doesn't just do a "do over" and hear the matter again because the result is so unfair to the person who didn't show up. (That is why we have notice requirements - to make sure the person on the other side knows what day the hearing is taking place and what is being heard that day).
I know this isn't what you want to hear, but I can only tell you what the law is.

Presumably they had to serve you with a copy of the Order and it is the law that you (and everyone else) has 10 days to file the objections. So it is just stating what the general law is to you.
