Form FL 180 is the form the Court uses for judgments. In family law, the Court utilizes FL 180 for purposes of dissolving a marriage. The section you're referring to involves the date that your divorce becomes official. The Court can determine the date for the parties and enter the date the marriage is irretrievably broken in subsection (a)(1), or the judge may wait for noticed motions from the parties with argument based on when they believe the marriage ended. As an alternative, you and your former spouse can agree on the date and then stipulate that a specific date was the date that the marriage officially dissolved. You would have to file a stipulation with the Court.
