A settlement agreement is not required, however be sure that there are no open issues which may arise in the future. A short agreement may be prudent wherein each party waives anything form the other in writing.
New York "no fault" statute will allow either one of you to file for divorce. In this case since it seems you and your spouse both want a divorce and there are no issues between you two, go to court and request an uncontested divorce package and fill it out. Once done correctly, file with court.
