  1. If the Answer and Waiver form your Wife signed waives her appearance at the Final Hearing, then no.


  2. She does not have to appear. Most courts will send a Notice to both parties regardless of whether a waiver wa ssigned or not.


  3. No, only one party needs to attend a Final Judgment hearing to finalize the divorce.
