I filed for divorce in August of 2012 and I finally received notification that my request to enter default was approved. I expected the judgment for dissolution would follow, but instead I received a notice that my judgment was rejected and that a hearing is required. My case is so simple - few assets and no children. I am very frustrated as the court already has delayed this case at least two months by losing three documents not once, but twice. In addition to the primary question, I am wondering if must I submit FAM031 in person and resubmit judgment paperwork? Will my court date be assigned at the time I file paperwork, and how soon can I expect a hearing to be scheduled? What questions should I expect to be asked in the hearing? Thank you.
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.
