My husband and I filed for a 1A Uncontested Divorce. We have agreed on all issues, and there's nothing being contested with regard to marital property, insurance or assets. Neither of us has a lawyer. We have a child together and have already come to an agreement on custody (joint legal and physical) and child support (neither of us is requesting it as we make very close to the same amount of money). All of this paperwork has been filed and nothing is being contested by myself or my husband, and our court date for a "1A Hearing" is tomorrow. Having never been in court before, what can I expect to happen at the hearing, if we are in agreement on all matters? Will the judge simply rule that the divorce is final in 120 days or is there a chance we will have to come back to court?
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.
