Husband Successfully Sets Aside Default His Wife Took Against Him

When the husband came to our family law firm for representation, he was a bit distraught. Although he had participated in the divorce filed by his wife, his last attorney had filed a motion to withdraw and left him unrepresented.

Meanwhile, his wife's lawyers successfully obtained a terminating sanctions order against him.

Even worse, his wife was seeking every bit of community property there was and every bank account and money they had. She wanted it all because she claimed he had absconded with money during the marriage.

Husband claimed he never got proper notice of the proceedings.

We pulled the entire Court file and reviewed everything. We found a series of due process violations that gave our client grounds to set aside the default and the terminating sanctions order.

At the hearing, we successfully obtained an order setting aside the terminating sanctions order and setting aside the default against our client.
