My husband and I are going through an uncontested, amicable, pro se divorce in Fairfax County, Virginia. I filed for divorce earlier this month and have already received in return the Domestic Case Cover Sheet and Complaint for Divorce with Case Number stamped on both. Now I must file, according to the Fairfax County website, the proposed Final Order of Divorce; Affidavit of Plaintiff; Affidavit of Witness; Waiver of Service of Process; Addendum for Protected Identifying Information; and Property Settlement Agreement. (It also says to file a Form VS4, but it previously said to file that with the Complaint for Divorce, which I did. Do I need to submit TWO VS4 forms?) It does NOT mention submitting a praecipe, or any type of cover sheet. Is either a praecipe or cover sheet required? Will a brief cover memo enumerating attachments and requesting forwarding to judge's chambers for review, suffice? Thank you.
You'll need to file a Cover sheet and (1) VS-4 form per sheet - at the beginning of the case with your Complaint for Divorce.

Best of luck.
