If both spouses want to file for dissolution (divorce) together and reach complete agreement regarding terms they request in the judgment, this packet may be appropriate. Filing together as co-petitioners eliminates certain formalities such as needing to arrange to have documents served on the other spouse. The packet can be used even if there is agreement on controversial issues, such as a decision that the parenting time of one party can occur only with supervision. This packet can also be used even if a spouse needs to bring a motion before the court requesting permission to not disclose personal information such as an address or phone number. If you are in a domestic violence situation, seek professional counsel before using this packet to determine if it is appropriate for you.
