If both parties agree on all of the issues relating to their marriage, an agreement is prepared and filed with the court with no court appearance necessary. If, however, temporary orders are needed to address child or spousal support, child custody, or any other matters affecting the family, a hearing will be held on those issues. If the issues regarding the division of property and permanent custody and support orders cannot be agreed upon, the matter will be set for trial before a judge.
