Not really sure what is going on. A divorce is started by filing a summons and complaint. A stipulation ("stip") is an agreement to resolve some or all the issues in the divorce. Sometimes, if the parties are being friendly and reasonable, we will draft and get signed the stipulation settling all the issues and file that with the summons and complaint, as well as all the final divorce papers.
