Good morning, I am an attorney expert with the JustAnswer website, and former Prosecutor for the State Attorney's Office. I have a near 100% customer satisfaction rate, and I'll be answering your questions today. JustAnswer provides general legal information only and does not constitute legal advice. Please allow me just a few minutes to review your question, thank you!

Ask Your Own Family Law Question

If you both mutually agree to the terms of the divorce, and you've filed an Agreement with the court -- then, no both parties do not need to be present.

If your wife lives in New York, then she should be fine not appearing in court as long as she has signed the Agreement, as well as an Acknowledgment of Service and Consent to Jurisdiction.

I hope that helps!
