Hi, Hazlcuttie ~

Please take special notice of the disclaimer below. This is not legal
advice, and shouldn't be substituded for the advice of a professional.
I am not a lawyer, and I don't play one on TV.

That said: in lay terms, a stipulated judgment in a divorce is a
judgment entered on a written agreement on all issues regarding the
divorce and submitted to the court as the final judgment (or decree as
the case may be). Often, a hearing is not required, merely the
agreement between the parties.

Because different jurisdictions have differing laws regarding such
matters as the equitable division of property, custody, alimony (or
spousal support) and other issues, not all will accept an agreement
between the parties and enter it as a stipulated judgment. As the
saying goes, your mileage may vary.

Those were the lay terms.

The Orange County, Florida, Superior Court has a good definition that
will suit your needs,

     "The court allows parties that have come to a full
      agreement, on all of the issues of their divorce or
      legal separation, to submit the written agreement
      to the court in the form of a Judgment. The agreed
      upon Judgment will be processed by the court without
      a court hearing being required."
