Yes, you both need to complete and file the form FL-141. If you have an agreement, then the final declaration of disclosure can be waived.
Look at the Judgment check list provided by the LA Superior Court: http://www.courts.ca.gov/documents/fl182.pdf
You both need to fill out form FL-141 unless you are proceeding by default. If by default then only the petitioner needs to file FL-141

This is a very interesting case, you state that your wife is out of the country and that you have an agreement in place, I am wondering if you had your agreement notarized by a consular Officer in that country and whether the Family Court Judge has said anything regarding the validity of the Agreement. I would advise that you send the FL-141 to your wife and ask her to sign it and have her attach a Notary Affidavit, prior to submitting it to the Court. Or at least ask the Judge, if the notarization is required. Anyone else has any input on this issue?
