Yes so no wrong order is entered.

Yes. You must prove up the petition and the judge must determine that the resolutions made were properly entered and fair.

Check the MN courts website for a default scheduling request. Check the appropriate box which indicates you don't want a hearing since you've both reached a stipulated agreement and no minor children are involved. If you can't get the hearing removed, you both are expected to attend.
