Generally, yes as long as the Father was properly served the papers. If he was served then he ignores the court at his peril.

Generally, if you have been properly served in another State with papers in Florida litigation, yes. You would have to engage an attorney to represent you to challenge the FL court's jurisdiction over you or the subject matter, as well as determine what defenses, if any, you have to the action in Florida.

Yes, it is an active case, but it depends upon what she does. If there is no record activity in the case, it could be dismissed after around 10 months or so.
