Yeah, I had to go to court about ten years ago, and there were a lot of uncontested divorce hearings. They took about a minute each. The most interesting one was where one party had to attend by phone, because at least that meant needing to set up the phone call and a notary in another state who obviously wasn't as familiar with my state's divorce laws as the judge.
