I am filing a no contest divorce and per courts instruction I have already served my ex-wife's lawyer with my Income and Expense declaration and have filed a declaration of the service with the court. I realize however that my ex-wife's attorney has filed the actual FL-150 form with the court as well. Is this something I need to do? When I read the law what I understand is that I am only required to serve the other party with the FL-150 form and pay stubs, tax returns etc. What is the advantage/disadvantage of filing a copy of the FL-150 with the court? Thanks
Divorce is the process of formally ending a marriage. Divorces may be jointly agreed upon, resolved by negotiation, or decided in court.
An uncontested divorce is one in which spouses agree on relevant issues such as division of property, child custody/support, and alimony.
