Default Divorce, the Process. For those parties that have agreed upon the terms of a Matrimonial Settlement Agreement they may go forward with a divorce that settles their issues of spousal support or alimony, child custody and child support and equitable distribution of assets such as a marital residence or retirement accounts or pensions. The process that may be used may be a default divorce, where only one party enters the divorce case and the other party does nothing other than agree and sign off on a MSA. In this instance, the complaint for divorce is filed and served on the other party, an agreement is signed by both parties. Only the party that filed the complaint ultimately appears in court to put the divorce through. Alternatively, if one party is not cooperating yet doesn't appear in the case, a Notice of Proposed Judgment may be served upon the other party with all the terms of the divorce and the divorce may be put through
