We have signed the petition and the Affidavit for decree without appearance of parties. Would filing the sworn financial statements as well reduce the likelihood of requiring a trial for going over finances? I am looking to file the documents and go through the process as quickly and painlessly as possible. My wife and I have already split our assets and do not need a trial. Also she has a daughter from a previous relationship and I am not seeking custody, so that is not an issue either.
Divorce is the process of formally ending a marriage. Divorces may be jointly agreed upon, resolved by negotiation, or decided in court.
Divorce court is where the divorce process takes place. The court may determine matters like alimony, child custody, and property division.
