In an uncontested divorce, you shouldn’t have to appear in court at all. In most cases of uncontested divorce, you and your spouse will develop a settlement agreement and your lawyers will present it to the court.
While the judge always has a right to call you and your spouse to court if there are questions, it’s not common for that to happen.
In a contested divorce, as well as in less common divorce scenarios like a publication divorce when you cannot locate your spouse, you probably will need to appear in front of a judge at least once. If your contested divorce is one that’s likely to drag on, you should be ready for multiple appearances in court.
