In CA, if we have an MSA, do we need these other forms?: My husband and I are divorcing in Orange County, CA. We agree on all matters including property/debt division, child support/visitation/custody, and spousal support. If we include a notarized MSA with our FL-180, do we still have to include forms like FL-341, FL-343, and FL 345, etc that address the same matters outlined in the MSA? Or can we just turn in the MSA and not do those forms?

Was family Code section 2337 revised a few years ago to make bifurcation of marital status more difficult?: how likely to get a judge's grant for bifurcation of marital status if I file a motion of bifurcation of marital status in Los Angeles by myself? my ex is not going to file with me, and we can't reach an agreement on settlement so I like to leave other issue out and get marital status change first.

I am filling out request for default setting in my divorce, what happens after I turn these in?: I have started a divorce and my husband has not responded to ANYTHING from me or the courts....so i was just given the next set of paperwork and it is called Request For Default Setting....what does that mean and what is the next step?

John’s answer: When your husband's default is entered he will be barred from any future participation in the case. The next step for you will be to then submit your desired judgment to the court, so that the case can be complete.
