When divorcing, there are two ways to resolve the marriage with your spouse, by agreement or by trial. The agreement can happen before filing for divorce in what is called a "Joint Petition" for divorce or also called an "uncontested divorce" or it can happen between the parties in a contested divorce all the way up until the judge renders a verdict following an evidenitary hearing or trial.
