Listen you may want to file an answer here so that a default decree is not entered.You can still reach settlement and sign settlement and agree to decree this just protects your rights.

Here are the forms to do that

http://www.flcourts.org/core/fileparse.php/533/urlt/903b.pdf

That way you are noticed of any hearings and if you cannot reach agreement you can go to hearing and have judge decide it all.

I appreciate the chance to help you today.Good luck here moving forward.

If you can positive rate 5 stars it is much appreciated.
