We have signed the petition and the Affidavit for decree without appearance of parties. Would filing the sworn financial statements as well reduce the likelihood of requiring a trial for going over finances? I am looking to file the documents and go through the process as quickly and painlessly as possible. My wife and I have already split our assets and do not need a trial. Also she has a daughter from a previous relationship and I am not seeking custody, so that is not an issue either.
