Form UD-7 Affirmation of Defendant

An Affirmation of Defendant is a form confirming the respondent has received the Complaint and is ready to answer. It is used in uncontested cases.

When the spouses have reached agreements concerning all the terms of their divorce and laid them out in a written Settlement Agreement, or if the respondent agrees to the divorce and everything the plaintiff is asking for upon receiving the Complaint, an Affidavit of Defendant must be filed with the court. The respondent must fill it in, sign it, have it notarized before a notary public, and send it to the plaintiff.

The document shows that the Complaint was served on the respondent, they agree to the terms, and they will appear before the court. In case the defendant fails to respond, an Affirmation of Service should be filed by the process server to prove the service was completed.
