The last thing you will do in your divorce when representing yourself is to prepare the divorce judgment forms. Which divorce judgment forms you submit will vary depending on what transpired up to this point. Meaning whether your spouse filed a response and whether there is an agreement.
In this post we are talking about the California Hybrid Divorce Judgment and providing you with a PDF Checklist the Courts use to make sure you have included all the proper forms.
The Hybrid divorce judgment checklist will be used when you have filed a Petition, the case is proceeding by default, and the parties have a written agreement. Yes, it is possible for you to have a written agreement even if your spouse has not filed a response. It is called a hybrid because it is a cross between a true default case (where there is no response and no agreement) and an uncontested case (where a response was filed and there is an agreement)
Depending on the type of divorce judgement you submitting the judgment forms required to ensure your divorce is not rejected are all different. We have several videos covering the various ways and different forms necessary to file your divorce depending on the circumstances.
