At this point it will be best to hire a lawyer to make sure a default gets entered and progress your case to trial. A default may not mean that your case will speed along. What it does mean if the default is upheld is that your wife wont be able to present her case properly and bring up issues that were properly plead or plead at all. This could be extremely significant based on the facts of your case. For example, if she probably is entitled to alimony, but you didn’t plead it and she never filed a counter petition, then the Judge’s hands would be tied from hearing any issues in regards to alimony. For some people that is a big deal.
