The following are instructions for completing the FL-130:
Box #1. If your spouse has already filed a Response, check box 1(b). If your spouse has not already filed a Response, check box 1(a). By checking box 1(a), your spouse is making an appearance in the action. If you check box 1(a) your spouse will need to pay his or her “first paper” filing fee when the FL-130 is filed with the court clerk (unless your spouse has previously filled out the fee waiver forms and qualified for a fee waiver).
Box #2. Check boxes “a” through “e”.
After you have filled out the FL-130, print it. You and your spouse will each date and sign it. Then, set the form aside. The FL-130 will be filed with the court clerk when you file your divorce judgment.
