The court will rule on all contested issues before it that are set forth in each party’s pleadings and are not otherwise withdrawn or settled in agreement between the party. If the parties have reached an agreement on some or all of the issues between them, then that agreement is presented to the court for incorporation into the divorce judgment or court order.
