How Is Divorce Granted?
There are three ways that a final divorce decree can be granted. Number one by default, if the defendant was served with the summons and the complaint for the divorce but they did not file an answer within the 21 days provided. The plaintiff can ask the court to enter a default and grant a final divorce. The plaintiff will typically get a Divorce Decree that includes everything that they have asked for in their initial complaint for divorce.
Number two, by agreement. If both parties agree to all of the issues, they can go ahead and draft an agreement, file it with the court as a decree and the court will then sign it and file it, that would be a final decree divorce per agreement.
And the third way that you can get a divorce is through either trial or court. If you go to court the judge makes all the decisions there. The court then gives you all the issues that have been decided in your case and that will then be a divorce decree based on the judge’s orders.
Those are the three ways that you can get a divorce now remember your divorce is not final until it has been signed by the judge and filed with the court.
