Pro se question


The absolute divorce will most likely be a separate filing from the settlement. Without reviewing the settlement, we can’t know whether you would be required to be present in court for its entry. You should seek an attorney’s review before signing.

The response posted above is based upon the limited factual information made available and is not intended as a full and complete response to the question. The only reliable manner to obtain complete and adequate legal advice is to consult with an attorney, fully explain your situation, and allow the attorney sufficient opportunity to research the applicable law and facts required to render an accurate opinion. The basic information provided above is intended as a public service but a full discussion with an attorney should be undertaken before taking any action.


In addition, will there even be a court date? Since I told the judge it was ok for his attorney to show up after getting my signature on settlement. Or is the paperwork just filed? And if so, would this be where I included an absolute divorce filing included for the judge to sign or can it be all taken care of before the hearing since there are no more disputes?

Thanks in advance for your time…sorry for the lengthy post
