In a divorce, the court ends a marriage based on grounds, such as incompatibility or gross neglect of duty. A divorce action begins with the filing of a Complaint for Divorce by one of the parties. An uncontested divorce happens when the spouses resolve all differences before the case goes to trial. If the parties do not agree on all the issues, then there will be a hearing or a trial and the Court (the Judge or the Magistrate) will ultimately make those decisions. However, at any time during the divorce process the parties reach an agreement, you will only need to attend the final merits hearing to make your agreement a court order.
