I am currently filing for divorce in the State of California from my ex spouse who is in the State of Washington. I consulted an attorney for some advice and she was more then willing to help out with the legal advice. Basically what she told me is this..if he doesn't respond in 30 days from being served (personally coming to CA and paying 325 dollars for filing fee) then it would go to default. Which means he would "default" and agree to everything. I've made it very friendly (meaning) in a earlier discussion we had I respected those wishes and placed them on the paper work. Do you think that he (who is having trouble paying child support, living with gf who has four kids and one together) would come to CA out of his way (works some crazy hours) to argue the paper work? Or do you think he would allow it to be defaulted? He's complaining all the time how he doesn't have money..yet bought a newer car. He pays about 800.00 a month in child support and now pays 500.00 in a car payment. He only brings home about 2700.00 before all that is taken out. He would have less then thirty days to respond with a personal appearance in the Sonoma County Courthouse. Now with that being said..he fought and argued the child support. He took it to a hearing (it was over the phone) and still complained about the support amount. Saying he didn't have any way of paying it. It is now garnished out of his wages (which haven't seen a dime of it yet). He then told me that he would be willing to sigh over the kids to me so he wouldn't have to pay for them. Which is beyond stupid! So, any thoughts on this?
