Divorce hearing: What happens

    I have a divorce hearing next month. Was wondering what happens in court on the day? Can I bring someone in for support? Does it take long?

    Have you a legal representative?

    Is it divorce hearing with the judge or is it with the registrar?

    To answer your question about bringing someone in , you can bring someone to the court with you ,but you cannot bring them into the court room with you, it’s a private hearing.

    their will be yourself , the other person, legal representation if ye have it, the judge and their secretary ( not sure on the correct term for that person )

    If its all agreed in advance by both sides and all the documentation is in order. The judge will walk you through it and basically confirm you are both in agreement etc.

    Doesn't take long.

    About bringing someone for support - absolutely! Having a buddy by your side can make all the difference. They can sit with you, give you a reassuring nod when needed, and just be there to have your back.
