Being found in default is not good. This means that the Court feels that you have had adequate notice of the pending divorce, and you have failed to engage in the process. If you know that a divorce is pending against you, you must do something (like file an Appearance). If you do nothing, your spouse can file a motion in Court to find you in default. If the Judge finds you in default, your spouse can complete the divorce process on their terms, all without your input.
To fix this problem, you will need to prepare a “Motion to Vacate Default.” Generally, if you bring that motion quickly, the Court will grant your motion, and the Default will be removed. Do not play around with issues of default. Make sure that you engage in the process, or you could (and likely will) loose many of your rights, property and support money.
