Divorce and the Final Hearing for a Final Judgment of Divorce. Upon the parties finalizing the terms of their divorce with a Property Settlement Agreement or Matrimonial Settlement Agreement, the divorce must be finalized with a final hearing for the divorce. At this hearing, the parties put through their divorce with the Court and a Final Judgment of Divorce issued by the Court and the PSA or MSA is incorporated into the Final Judgment of Divorce with all its terms. The Court filed the Judgment of Divorce and the MSA and PSA and the parties receive a copy of the Final Judgment of Divorce with a gold seal as proof of their divorce. Generally, the parties and their attorneys appear at this hearing where the parties state on the record that they understand and agree with the terms of their divorce, that they are agreeing without coercion and doing so voluntarily, they are not under the influence of any medications or drugs that would impair the ability to understand the proceeding, they are waiving their right to a trial, agree with the terms of alimony or waiver of alimony and are asking that the court incorporate the PSA or MSA into the Final Judgment of Divorce.
