What is a Resolution Statement Without Children?
A Resolution Statement Without Children explains your proposed resolution of the major issues involved in your divorce case. In other words, you are telling the judge and the other party how you want to resolve things like:
- Spousal maintenance
- Division of your property
- Division of any debts
- Attorneys fees
- Medical decisions or payment of medical costs
Your spouse will submit a Resolution Statement as well, and the court will compare both statements to see where they are in agreement in a session called a Resolution Management Conference (RMC).
If you have minor children with your spouse, you should file a Resolution Statement With Children.

How is the Resolution Statement Used?
Prior to a Resolution Management Conference, both you and your spouse are required to file Resolution Statements. Resolution statements list and explain all of your positions on outstanding issues in your case. They should identify for the judge what the outstanding (not agreed upon) issues are and how you would like them to be resolved.
What Happens After I Submit the Statement?
The Resolution Management Conference is a 30-minute hearing in front of your assigned judge. During the RMC, the judge will review the Resolution Statements, determine whether there are any agreements and then a plan for moving forward with your case.
