You can agree to all the things that need to be covered in the divorce. This would be custody, visitation, a parenting plan which covers visitation, all the things that go into parenting such as vacations, then you will have child support, spousal support if any, and division of property, including pension plans.

 

Once you are agreed on this issues, the divorce decree will incorporate these terms. The court will then adopt the consent divorce decree based on that agreement.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
