  1. If you want to be divorced you have to file the proper documents with the court. Most family courts have a clinic to help you do all the proper forms.


  2. If no hearing is scheduled, then no appearance is necessary. Just get proof that the judgment has been filed.


  3. You can process your dissolution without the need of going to court. the forms are available on line, FL 170, FL 180 and FL 190, to the extent you haven't filed a declaration of disclosure you need FL 140.
