    Lawyers agree

    Answered . Get him to agree and sign a joint complaint, property settlement agreement and final judgement.
    File the Complaint. Wait 60 days. Present the signed Agreement and Final Judgment to the Court. You should hire a lawyer. If it's as cut and dry as it appears it will not be too expensive.
