So basically, the defendant needs to receive this form
From the receipt of that form, they have 30 days to object to the judgment. There should also be on file in the court a proof of service regarding when this paper was allegedly provided to the defendant. If service was defective (some process servers will lie about service, and this can be proven by showing for example, that a person was at work when the log shows it was served at home, or by reviewing the server's logs to see if it was "padded" - ie the server was in 2 places at once).
The proper form to file to object to a judgment that the defendant did not receive notice of is a motion to vacate the judgment and to quash the service.
Here is that form:
Please keep in mind that if the court rules in the other party's favor, the court can award them any fees incurred - ie additional service fees; so it is important to have adequate evidence that service was not proper/complete.
