Where Do Both Parties Sign California Divorce FL-180 Form
Hi, Tim Blankenship here with divorce661.com. In this video and podcast what we’re talking about is the FL 180 when you are filing a default with agreement type judgment. So, as you know there’s different types of divorce cases, you can have a default, you can have a default with agreement and you can have uncontested.
Each of these has different requirements as far as signatures. So, on the FL 180 if you look at page 2 you’ll notice that there’s a line for a signature but if you have a default with agreement case, meaning both parties are involved but a response was not filed, the respondent still needs to sign.
So, where do they sign, there’s only 1 line on page 2 of the FL 180. So, what you need to do is you need to add a signature page at the end of your judgment, the last page should be a signature page and the respondent needs to have their signature notarized when it’s a default with agreement.
The reason being is they didn’t respond so, you cannot submit the FL 180 with just your signature on page 2, you need to have a signature page at the end for both parties to sign and the respondent’s signature needs to be notarized.
