THREE MAIN WAYS OF RESOLVING
YOUR DIVORCE

DEFAULT JUDMENT

When you and other party have reached a final settlement on all your issues, you need to put your various agreements in writing. This is called either a Marital Settlement Agreement or a Stipulated Judgment, depending on the type of documents you choose. Either way, the judgment will be a comprehensive written document that reflects the agreements you and your spouse made on all your issues.
