The Divorce Process

Step 6
Attend the court hearing

On the date of the hearing, the case will be heard by a judge. The judge will ask the applicant (and sometimes the respondent) to give evidence about the case.

Any terms of agreement submitted will be considered by the judge as part of any orders they make.

If the applicant and respondent are not in agreement, the judge will decide for them and make orders.
