You don’t necessarily have to go to court to get your divorce finalised. Going to court for a divorce is not always required and depends on your situation.
If both parties mutually agree on the divorce and the terms such as how the assets should be divided, they probably won’t have to go to court. Instead, their lawyers can draft a Consent Order confirming that both parties agree with the way the assets will be split. The Consent Order will be sent to the court for approval. Providing the order seems fair for each party, the court will approve it.
If both parties don’t agree with the divorce, perhaps they have conflicting ideas about financial matters or child custody arrangements, it may be necessary to go to court. In most cases, the court asks that parties try to resolve their disputes through mediation first. If this is not possible, it is likely that the matter will go to court to figure out how best to make arrangements.
