Do I have to Attend Court For My Divorce?

The divorce process is split into 2 parts, firstly with the divorce itself, and secondly with the ancillary matters. If the divorce is uncontested, and both parties have no disputes as to what is being stated down in the Statement of Claim and Statement of Particulars, they can then proceed to have the case set down. If everything has been agreed upon then there is no need for you to attend any conferences as long as you have a divorce lawyer representing you.

However, if the case is disputed and contested, matters will get arranged for either mediation or hearing. Parties’ attendance is compulsory for mediation. There will be chances for mediation before the case goes onto a hearing, however, mediation is compulsory is you have children who are below 21 years of age.

In conclusion, if you do not have a divorce lawyer representing you for your case, you will have to attend in person for all session required (e.g. conferences, mediation, counselling).
