Brief overview of my RCR case - I file RCR last July in my local FC. Wife applies for transfer petition and excuse from personal appearance 10 days before first hearing. SC grants stay of 6weeks. By the time it reaches FC, first hearing done and FC judge sets the proceedings as exparte. In next hearing SC stay expires and FC judge gave three hearings but wife didnt appear. Finally, 5 months later, HC transfers RCR to wife's location. Now wife, at her location, files a set aside citing " misunderstanding that i was exempted from personal appearance" and " lawyer who filed the case in HC didnt inform me " as reasons for set aside
1. Can I contest this and request FC at her location to continue proceedings Ex Parte?
2. Do the above conditions satisfy "Sufficient cause"?
3. What is a good strategy here - contest exparte set aside on technicalities or allow set aside and fight the case on its merits
