If he signs the papers, I will still need to fill out the form. So the motion / action to list on the form is "request FOD"?

No you would not.You would set the matter for final hearing and then present settlement/decree to judge.

The settlement/decree would be the FOD that I have typed up?
If he does not sign, then I will need to continue with the Motion’s Day Praecipe/Notice, correct?

Thats correct here.I wish you the best.

Thanks again, thanks for 5 stars.

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.
