When is Divorce Legal after I file?


#1

Once I file for Divorce, how long before it is official ?
It is uncontested per our SA.


#2

You will need to schedule the hearing, and the divorce will be final when the judge signs the decree.


#3

So it is all dependent on when the court has openings in their schedule ?
Does my wife even have to attend the hearing ?


#4

Yes, you must contact the clerk to set a hearing date, send notice of the hearing to your ex, and attend the hearing with a judgment you prepare for the judge to sign. The defendant need not appear.
