I filled for motion of preference in an uncontested divorce and i have to submit affidavit of service. My question is do i or my attorney have to go in person in front of the judge to give him the reasons why we want to expedite the divorce. In the motion i have written that i have to file for immigration petition next month & it requires divorce judgement. My attorney says we don't need to go, its a court procedure and they will let us know, if its an emergency case or not. Please advise.
Divorce is the process of formally ending a marriage. Divorces may be jointly agreed upon, resolved by negotiation, or decided in court.
An uncontested divorce is one in which spouses agree on relevant issues such as division of property, child custody/support, and alimony.
