What is a default hearing?

The Court may grant the requests made in the Petition for Dissolution without the Respondent participating if the person served with the Petition for Dissolution did not file a Response. A default hearing can be set by the Petitioner if the other party/Respondent has not filed a written response. A default hearing can be scheduled by the Court upon written request when you want a divorce, other judgment, or order of the Court when the opposing side does not respond in writing to your petition or motion. In a Dissolution, a default hearing cannot be set for at least 60 days after the date the petition (and other documents) were served on the Respondent.
