Legal Question

Asked on: 7/29/13, 7:08 pm

I filed for custody and child support for my three year old daughter. I had her father served by a county sheriff. The sheriff had to track him down and it did not occur until the last day she had to serve him. After the 30 days, he did not file an answer so I was told I could file for an order of default. I checked today and it states that the order of default was granted by the judge. My question at this point is what does this mean exactly? Will the judge allow him to continue on or will this go in my favor? We have a scheduling hearing set for next week but I am curious as to what I should prepare myself for or if this just means that the court will grant him more time to file an answer ? thank you
