Customer Question

In the petition I received paragraph 9 says that the court should divide the property and debt. My wife and I have already made these arrangements and there is nothing to divide. Should the statement be changed to reflect the agreement that we have made?

No, that is not necessary. That language is there to protect you in case your agreement falls apart. It's boilerplate contained in most every petition for divorce. It will not affect your final order and it will not affect your agreement with your wife if the agreement remains intact.
