17430.  (a) Notwithstanding any other provision of law, in any
action filed by the local child support agency pursuant to Section
17400, 17402, or 17404, a judgment shall be entered without hearing,
without the presentation of any other evidence or further notice to
the defendant, upon the filing of proof of service by the local child
support agency evidencing that more than 30 days have passed since
the simplified summons and complaint, proposed judgment, blank
answer, blank income and expense declaration, and all notices
required by this division were served on the defendant.
   (b) If the defendant fails to file an answer with the court within
30 days of having been served as specified in subdivision (d) of
Section 17400, or at any time before the default judgment is entered,
the proposed judgment filed with the original summons and complaint
shall be conformed by the court as the final judgment and a copy
provided to the local child support agency, unless the local child
support agency has filed a declaration and amended proposed judgment
pursuant to subdivision (c).
   (c) If the local child support agency receives additional
financial information within 30 days of service of the complaint and
proposed judgment on the defendant and the additional information
would result in a support order that is different from the amount in
the proposed judgment, the local child support agency shall file a
declaration setting forth the additional information and an amended
proposed judgment. The declaration and amended proposed judgment
shall be served on the defendant in compliance with Section 1013 of
the Code of Civil Procedure or otherwise as provided by law. The
defendant's time to answer or otherwise appear shall be extended to
30 days from the date of service of the declaration and amended
proposed judgment.
   (d) Upon entry of the judgment, the clerk of the court shall
provide a conformed copy of the judgment to the local child support
agency. The local child support agency shall mail by first-class
mail, postage prepaid, a notice of entry of judgment by default and a
copy of the judgment to the defendant to the address where he or she
was served with the summons and complaint and last known address if
different from that address.
