Family Law Questions? Ask a Family Lawyer Online.
property can be divided, and support can be ordered, howsoever you both agree. As long as you both agree, the court is glad to go along with it. My suggestion would be that you contact the clerk of your county courthouse's family law division and request a "divorce packet". The divorce packet will give you the forms that you need along with some basic instructions. If you complete the paperwork and request "an uncontested divorce" or "uncontested dissolution", that will give the court the authority to order a divorce without any sort of spousal support.
Let me know if I may be of further assistance. Thank you.
you can agree to anything that you please with regard to a current child support order; however, child support is always modifiable. So you could agree to something today, and either of you could turn around tomorrow and get a new order. Today's order is enforceable for today, but that would not prevent the entry of a new order tomorrow.
I am glad that you specifically asked about that---although it is generally addressed at the time of divorce, child support is technically an issue separate from the divorce.
