If a couple has resolved their issues except the division of their property, does a judge decide the entire case?

Judges encourage parties to settle as many issues between themselves as possible. The court will decide any issues that remain unresolved between the parties. If the parties are able to resolve allocation of parental responsibilities and parenting time, but they cannot agree on the division of their estate, then the court will only have to hear arguments related to the division of the estate.
