When waiting my turn at the uncontested docket I am always surprised at how often defaults are done without supporting evidence. Here is another case that shows what happens when you don’t prove up your case even when the other side doesn’t bother to show up.
In re Marriage of Leang and Sun, No. 07-18-00352-CV, 2019 WL 1008490 (Tex. App.—Amarillo 2019, no pet. h.) (mem. op.) (03-01-19). – Here the Husband was granted an appeal and the case sent back to the trial court because at a default hearing the Wife offered no evidence about the extent of the marital estate, the income or debt of either party, the residence of the children, the relationship of the children with either parent, or the ages of the children. The appellate court thus concluded that the court made factually-based decisions without supporting evidence, which constituted error on the face of the record.
