No, you shouldn’t need to appear in court if your divorce is uncontested.
In an uncontested divorce, you and your spouse are able to arrive at agreement on the major issues of the action, including child custody and support payments, an equitable distribution of marital assets and debts, spousal support, if applicable, and other issues relevant to your family.
When the divorce begins uncontested, neither party should have to appear in court.
You’ll simply fill out the necessary documents, sign them, and submit them to the court.
Working with an experienced divorce attorney is a way to make sure all your bases are covered, filing deadlines are met, and to answer any questions you may have about the process, the timeline, or what the implications of a particular agreement mean.
In Rochester, the attorneys at Friedman & Ranzenhofer help clients have fast, affordable uncontested divorces every day.
