How can I get a default judgement vacated on a child custody/support motion

Resolved Question:

In the San Bern County Courts, our son was served by his child's mother and filled out and filed the response with the court, it was returned for additional info and signatures, then he was told by the child's mother that she was dropping the matter, then she filed a default. My son has not received anything official from the court and we were told that we could get the default judgement vacated or set aside. I need to know which forms to file to accomplish that so that we can proceed with the response and make our appearance in court. Thank you.

He would need to file a Notice of Motion to set aside child support and then a separate Notice of Motion to set aside the child custody orders since you are stating there was a child custody and support hearing.

Notice of motion forms as follows:

He should contact the family facilitator's office in San Bernandino to help him out with the forms. They provide free services to those who are representing themselves. He should also contact them to see if there are any other local forms that need to be included that are not part of the general California court website.
