Where appellant challenged the denial of his motion to set aside a default judgment in a paternity case, the family court erred in denying the motion because the default judgment was void for lack of personal jurisdiction since the appellant was not properly served, so the court had not obtained personal jurisdiction in the underlying paternity action.
Judgment is reversed.
