Notice Re: Dependent of a
Person in Military Service
Notice: State and federal law provide protections to defendants/respondents who are on active duty in
the military service, and to their dependents. This notice only pertains to a defendant/respondent who is a
dependent of a member of the National Guard or a military reserve component under a call to active
service for a period of more than thirty (30) consecutive days. Other defendants/respondents in military
service also have protections against default judgments not covered by this notice. Dependents of a
service member are the service member’s spouse, a service member’s minor child, or an individual for
whom the service member provided more than one-half of the individual’s support for one hundred eighty
days (180) days immediately preceding an application for relief.
One protection provided is the protection against the entry of a default judgment in certain circumstances.
If you are the dependent of a member of the National Guard or a military reserve component under a call
to active service for a period of more than thirty (30) consecutive days, you should notify the
plaintiff/petitioner or, if the plaintiff/petitioner is represented by an attorney, the plaintiff/petitioner’s
attorney in writing of your status as such within twenty (20) days of the receipt of this notice. If you fail
to do so, then a court or an administrative tribunal may presume that you are not a dependent of an active
duty member of the National Guard or reserves, and proceed with the entry of an order of default and/or a
default judgment without further proof of your status. Your response to the plaintiff/petitioner or
plaintiff/petitioner’s attorney about your status does not constitute an appearance for jurisdictional
purposes in any pending litigation, a waiver of your rights or a response to the petition, complaint or other
application for relief that was filed against you.
