FLR 10(5) absolutely states what you say, but from recent personal experience, the court may just very likely give your ex further opportunities.

In my case, after she missed two court appearances, the ex got faxed permission to file three months late just two days before the uncontested trial was to commence. Furthermore, she even filed that late response, three weeks after the date the judge gave her. Even more, she didn't file a single document for our recent settlement conference, but was allowed to fully participate as if she had!

So, by regulations, you are absolutely correct, but in practice, your ex may get a few more breaks.
