Legal Question in Family Law in Florida

Motion for Default in Custody hearing in Florida

The respondent has been served but I do not believe will respond. What happens when the motion for default is filed? Does it default judgement to what I requested or does the respondent get to still oppose?

You should wait for the default and once the default occurs you can file for a request for default and enter judgment by attending a prove up hearing.

As always please contact a local attorney in your area before taking legal action.

Good luck!
