Thank you for your question.

What type of judgment are you trying to amend?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
I filed a default judgment for divorce. During the default heraing, the judge stated that the I do not have enough evidence to support separate property claim , unless there is an stipulation ot marital settlement agreement , she will not sign the order. I secured an marital settlllement agreement and pre pare a Forn 130.
my question are:
1. Do I need to file another judgment form(FL180) becuase the old one asked judge to order according to FL345 form, but the new judgment will be order as Marrital Agreement satted.
2. Is there any special amend judgment form in CA
3. Do I need submit other fotrm besides FL180, FL130 and agreement.

I did not receive answer

Oh I see, thank you for your follow-up.

You just need to file the FL 130 and FL 180, check the box in the FL 130 (if the husband does consent to the terms), and file a new FL 180--California does not have an additional amendment form for you to utilize.

For future reference, go to the link below to download and find all of the forms that you need to complete your divorce, as once your judgment is entered, you will have to fill out the FL 190:

Good luck!
