What you can expect will happen in Court is dependent upon the nature of the dispute and the complexity and number of issues which are to be resolved by a trial Judge.  If your case is uncontested or you have resolved all the issues arising from your marriage by Agreement, then you can expect to be divorced after a brief evidentiary hearing.  If there are a number of issues such as custody, access, alimony, and the valuation and division of marital property, then the evidentiary hearing may be far more complicated and lengthy and will require your testimony as well as the presentation of other corroborating evidence to provide the Court with a sufficient evidentiary basis to resolve the matter at issue.
