What is a consent decree?

A consent decree is the document used when both you and your spouse agree to all terms of the divorce. Both parties must agree on division of property and debt, spousal maintenance, and the parenting plan (if minor children are part of the marriage). Using a consent decree makes the divorce process quicker and easier.
