An affidavit of consent is required in some states to be filled with a no fault or mutual consent divorce.

This document must be signed by both parties.

Special notices to defend and claim rights may also be required in some states. Check with with your court clerk for more information.

Couples can obtain a no-fault divorce by mutual consent of the parties ninety (90) days after filing and service of the divorce complaint (Section 3301(c) of the Divorce Code).

This is often the quicker option for a no-fault divorce however it is contingent

When both parties agree and sign the consent it is in most cases the quicker option for a no-fault divorce.

A party cannot be forced to consent even if he or she previously entered an agreement indicating they would timely consent to the divorce.

..."[a] person has an unqualified right to change his or her mind and refuse to consent to be divorced, at least, as here, where the consent, though signed, has not been delivered or filed." Berman v. Berman, 33 Pa. D. & C.3d 134 (1983).
