- Affidavit of Consent
Affidavit of Consent"When you and your spouse have both agreed to move forward with a mutual or no-fault divorce, an Affidavit of Consent makes that decision formal. In some states, it's a required first step for this type of divorce. We'll take you through creating an Affidavit of Consent, step by step. No-fault divorces are a type of divorce where both spouses agree that the other spouse isn't at fault--in other words, neither spouse caused the divorce. Once you've decided to go the no-fault route, an Affidavit of Consent makes the decision official. For example, if your spouse filed divorce proceedings, you'll file an Affidavit of Consent to inform the court you agree to dissolve your marriage. When you create an Affidavit of Consent, note that you may be acknowledging and accepting the loss of certain rights regarding alimony, property, and lawyer's fees. Once you've completed this document, you may need to sign it in front of a notary public, depending on the local and state laws where you live."

- Divorce Settlement Agreement
Divorce Settlement Agreement"Divorce is never easy, but you and your spouse have both agreed to this divorce and you've reached an agreement on how to divide your property, accounts, debts, and/or child custody. You can create a Divorce Settlement Agreement to clearly define the terms of the settlement with your spouse. Because you and your spouse have both agreed to the divorce, and because you agree about how to divide your property and assets, you can legally divorce using this document. A Divorce Settlement Agreement needs to be prepared together by two spouses who are in agreement about how their property, assets, debts and other marital issues will be divided or handled. The Agreement may also be used to define child custody, visitation and child support if the parties have minor children under age 18. You may only use this Divorce Settlement Agreement together with your spouse. Do your research, because each state may call this Agreement by a different title. It might be known in your state as a Marital Settlement Agreement or a Marital Separation Agreement. The appropriate title for your state will be in the Agreement."
