Thank you for your question. That is correct, if it is uncontested then the earliest the decree can be entered is 31 days from the date of filing.
The agreement or the decree would need to determine who is responsible for the ortgage; normally it will be assigned to the person who remains in the house, if they can afford it; otherwise the court may apportion it between the two parties, or even order the other spouse to pay it 100%. Normally the person that has exclusive use of the home will pay at least that portion of the mortgage that would be what the fair rental value of the property would be.
