Making an Affidavit of Consent
An Affidavit of Consent is a legal document that you can use to agree to move forward with a no-fault divorce. In some states, it's a required first step for this type of divorce, where both spouses agree that the other spouse isn't at fault—in other words, neither spouse caused the divorce. When you make 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 typically need to sign it in front of a notary public, depending on the local and state laws where you live.
