What is required or involved in filing a motion for default? My understanding is that the respondent has 30 days to file a response, it has been approximately 6 weeks since service was complete and the status conference was already held 10 days ago and the respondent did not appear.
I am asking for a close friend, she is not represented by an attorney. The marriage was common law due to filing taxes together and filing an affidavit related to health insurance. They have one child from the common law marriage.
Service was made by a private professional process server and the respondent did not file a response (he verbally indicated that he would not file a response immediately after being served), the status conference date was included in the papers he was served and he did not show up, and even before that he told her that he would not complete the parenting class and that he would not take the time off work to go to the final hearing. He has not completed any of the required paperwork including a parenting plan or the financial affidavit.
Do you have a referral for an attorney in the Denver area that could write up the motion needed for the court in this case?
