What happens at a divorce hearing?

In most cases the judge will grant the divorce as long as the divorce settlement agreement is fair. If your spouse contests the agreement, you may need to attend further hearings until the matter is satisfactorily resolved. The judge will tell you what, if anything, you need to do.

The procedures in a hearing do vary from state to state. If you are not sure, the Clerk of Court will tell you on request. If there are no irregularities, the judge will review the settlement and make sure that the contents are fair. After this, a divorce decree is granted.
