Good morning. I certainly understand the situation and your concern. A motion to vacate the judgment would likely need to be filed. In the body of the motion, the moving party needs to show and explain to the Judge why they failed to appear and good cause,as to why the judgment should be vacated and the case reset. If that can be done, you can also share with the court you want to fight this and have the matter decided on the merits, rather you you missing the appearance.

Please let me know if you have any follow up questions or need any clarification on something which I stated above.
