You do not need to go to trial on issues that you and your spouse can agree to as and for a final settlement.
You may need to go to trial for a divorce in Queens on individual issues if you and your spouse cannot agree. In that case, the Judge will make a final determination on those specific issues only.
For example, you and your spouse may agree to everything except child custody. In that case, you may need to go to trial on only the issue of child custody.
