When the parties agree on all issues in a divorce, they draft and submit a Consent Decree. The Consent Decree should contain all the parties’ agreements on all the outstanding issues. Where children are involved, a Parenting Plan must be included with the Consent Decree. If property is involved, a Property Settlement Agreement is also commonly used. The parties review the documents, and once everyone is satisfied with the language, the parties sign it in front of a notary. If they are represented, their attorney also signs it. Once the Court signs it, it becomes an order of the Court and the parties are officially divorced.
