We have no children, property, etc. Totally uncontested. Do we have to go to court?
It will depend on the particular judge that your case is pending before.
If both spouses approve and sign a proposed decree, some judges will allow the spouse who is being granted the divorce and their witness to sign affidavits setting out the testimony they would otherwise give at a hearing. Other judges require that the party and their witness appear for a hearing.
You can contact the Court's case coordinator to ask what procedure you need to follow.
