Will I Have To Appear In Court During My Divorce?

In an uncontested divorce, you shouldn’t have to appear in court at all. In most cases of uncontested divorce, you and your spouse will develop a settlement agreement and your lawyers will present it to the court.

While the judge always has a right to call you and your spouse to court if there are questions, it’s not common for that to happen.

In a contested divorce, as well as in less common divorce scenarios like a publication divorce when you cannot locate your spouse, you probably will need to appear in front of a judge at least once. If your contested divorce is one that’s likely to drag on, you should be ready for multiple appearances in court.

The attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino can help you have the easiest possible divorce in your situation.
