Thank you for your patience.
So for an uncontested divorce, both parties need to be in agreement with regards ***** ***** issues, including division of property, spousal maintenance, child support, etc.
So typically the petitioning spouse would file the petition, along with the signed (by both parties) marital settlement agreement, and the Signed (by respondent) Acknowledgment of Service and Consent to Jurisdiction.
This allows the court to fast track the divorce, since the parties are in agreement.
If there is no marital settlement agreement, then the standard form is the contested divorce. There are grounds for contested divorce, but one may also contend "irreconciable differences".
The petitioner (the party initiating the action) must be a resident of the state for a minimum of 6 months; under the UCCJEA ( the federal child custody jurisdiction act) the state that has jurisdiction is the state where the child has resided for the past 6 months, as this is the only state that may enter orders re: the custody, visitation and support of the child
