Greetings. Yes, you must supply the notice of hearing and no, it is not optional. I am not sure what you signed, but it sounds like a waiver.
I would tell you to go and check the divorce file to ensure that everything is in order. I believe that if the judge signed your divorce, that everything was in order in the file - especially if you signed a waiver. Check the file and best of luck.
