What is an Application and Affidavit for Default?

The Application for Default requests that the court grants you everything you asked for in your Petition, by default, because the other party has not filed a response within the legal time limit.

The Details

You can file this document if at least 20 days have passed since the other party was served with your Petition, and the other party has not filed a Response. The exception is if the other party lives outside of Arizona; then they have 30 days to respond to your Petition.
