If husband agrees on everything, how would I proceed, do I take the paperwork to him before filing? What are the steps?
Marriage / Prenuptials Lawyer
Go to your local Superior Court's self-help clinic for assistance from a volunteer attorney preparing your papers for filing and advising you of the Declaration of Disclosure process and the procedures and documents needed to file a Stipulated Judgment. You would best at least consult with an experienced Family Law Attorney to evaluate the proposed settlement that you have with your husband.
Please note that this answer does not constitute legal advice, and should not be relied on, as each situation is fact specific, and it is not possible to evaluate a legal problem without a comprehensive consultation and review of all the facts and court pleadings filed in the case. This answer does not create an attorney-client relationship.

Divorce / Separation Lawyer
I agree with Attorney Conviser. Also, if you were married less than five years and do not have any children you might want to Google JC form FL-810 and see if you satisfy the other requirements for a summary dissolution. It is a streamlined procedure for short-term marriages that do not have a lot of issues.
Child Custody Lawyer
I would ask the local clerk at the courthouse.
