I filed a default judgment package for divorce and during default

Resolved Question:

I filed a default judgment package for divorce and during default hearing, the judge stated that there are no evidence that I can prove separate property. She said that if both parties sign a marital settlement agreement, she will sign the judgment order. I drafted a marital agreement and fill a form FL130, however, Do I need file another judgment (FL180) because the one i filed before asking to judgment based on attached property division form( FL345 ) instead of check the box agreement or stipulation.

Hello and thank you for allowing me the opportunity to assist you.

Yes, I believe that you must fill out another judgment form because you’ve made changes. If you weren’t using forms, I’d say to file an amended request for judgment. Since you’re using forms, I suggest you contact the court of clerk to be sure that there isn’t a specific form to use for amending the first judgment form. If there is not, then I’d simply file the new one, which should indicate that the first judgment form is void.
