I was told that I should file a REQUEST FOR DEFAULT SETTING since I am requesting for spousal support. However, if no hearing is required do I need to submit evidence of the amount that I am requesting and attach some type of computer print out or what is called dissomaster?
Does it matter that I want to enforce the judgment on my husband that is in another state, Florida. he was personally served and I just want to make sure I get the adequate support order to be able to enforce it in Florida.
I live in California and we were married in California. We were living together in Florida when I was abandoned in 2012. I then moved to California since I had no place to live. I filed my petition here in CA.
Yes. thank you. that is why I wanted to make sure that an order is entered in CA so I can then have it enforced in FLORIDA if, he challenges it.
I believe that is why I was told to request a default setting hearing so that I can prove up the support order.
Yes. I understand. My plan is that since the court did have jurisdiction, since he was personally served, I can proceed and then have the order instituted in FLorida as you stated. that has been my plan from the start. I believe that personally jursidiciton will suffice for now.
