What does Default Judgment mean?

A default judgment can be made when a plaintiff files a complaint or a petition with the court, and the defendant fails to answer it. Default judgments are awarded after a set amount of time has passed without a response from the defendant, and the plaintiff asks the court for a default judgment. A default hearing is held and the court may agree to grant the plaintiff the requests they outlined in the petition or complaint.
