After the 60 days waiting period (count days from the day your petition was stamped) and both spouses have signed off on all orders, you will need to call the district clerks office for a "prove-up" date. Prove up is the process of finalizing your divorce in front of the Judge at an uncontested hearing that requires the attendance of only one party (although nothing is preventing the Respondent from attending as well to recite the required information, also known as Prove up Script (see link below) to complete the divorce process. The court will hear the basics of the property division and custody of children in order to determine if the arrangement is in the best interest of the child. The judge will usually sign off on the orders you present, so make sure all the relevant documents are together and bring at least 3 copies of each document.
