It is not usually necessary to attend court as the divorce is a paper process. Court attendance will only become necessary if the divorce is defended by your spouse (although defended divorce proceedings are rare) or there is a dispute over costs, or there is a dispute concerning the financial and/or children-related arrangements which you have not been able to resolve without either you or your spouse commencing separate court proceedings. In any event, there are alternative options for resolving financial and/or children disputes which we can discuss with you.
