After being separated for 6 months, my stbx and I worked out a settlement agreement for marital assets/child custody/child support and was filed as a Consent Order and the judge signed it and has been filed with the clerk of court as a court order.
We’ve now been separated and living apart for 1 year and 10 months and to save money, I’m filing the papers for divorce myself and I need to answer the following question: Have you and your spouse signed a private written agreement regarding your marital issues (for example, child custody, child support, spousal support, or property division), which states anywhere in it that it must be “incorporated” into a divorce judgment? We do have a written agreement which was signed by both of us and signed by the judge making it a court order, which has been filed with the clerk of court. So should I answer no, since the Consent Order/Court Order has already been filed as a separate document? Also, when I complete the forms to file for divorce, do I need to reference the docket number or file number listed on the Court Order?
