Legal Question in Insurance Law in Florida

My father's life insurance benefits had an interpleader to pay it out, my co-defendant didn't redpond to the summons. It wasn't paid out originally because he listed my step-mother as 2/3 primary and me as 1/3 contingent. There was not enough room to list me on the primary line. She didn't want to settle out of court-she wanted all of it...

what are my rights now that she didn't respond within the 21 days? We are both pro se.

You ought to consider hiring an attorney. It sounds like the form completed by your father is confusing and subject to Court interpretation. Her failure to respond gives the Plaintiff the opportunity to default her and seek a judgment. The document still needs to be interpreted by the Court. Her failure to respond wont eliminate her rights.

Move for a default judgment.
