In RE Marriage of McKim (C. 3d 673 ) requires a showing of "exceptional circumstances" prior to the court allowing default by affidavit. Generally, the court requires petitioner to appear and testify. A declaration of exceptional circumstances must be included if requesting a default by affidavit. * Before granting a dissolution order in any case involving children in which one or both parents of the child have not appeared either personally or by counsel, or if the other party has not been personally served, the Court will require the parent, petitioner, or other party appearing in the case to submit a certified copy of the child's birth certificate to the court. FAILURE to provide this certificate may result in a delay in processing your paperwork. All judgments shall be complete and not incorporate Marital Settlement Agreements. Ten days after receipt of all the above items and if no response has been filed, the clerk may then set the default hearing in one of the appropriate departments and direct the parties to appear at the time set for hearing. 13-15731-360 Rev. 8/94 SB-15731 2000 (C) American LegalNet, Inc.
