Answers to your questions

How long will it take before I’m officially divorced?
Judges typically move uncontested divorces to the top of their to-do list so they can sign off on the final uncontested divorce order and turn their focus to the more complicated, contested and time consuming cases.  Judges have up to 90 days to sign off on the divorce decree after it is filed with the court, however, often times the judge will sign the final uncontested divorce order within 30 days of the customer filing the uncontested divorce documents with the court.

Can’t I just fill out the forms from the courthouse or print them off the internet?

Will I have to go to court if I get a Minnesota uncontested divorce?
If you have minor children, you will need to attend a brief court appearance called a default hearing.  The judge will read through your uncontested divorce documents, ask you a handful of quick and simple questions and then sign your final divorce order so that you will be officially divorced when you leave the courthouse.
