Sounds like how my state (NH) handles divorce as well. My ex and I drew up our own paperwork, and only had to meet with the judge because one thing wasn't clear to him. No lawyer or mediator fees (just filing fees), and we each transferred ownership as we agreed (filing quitclaim deeds and swapping car titles). Done.

Other states require a wait period (I know RI does this), and your mileage may vary wildly depending upon where you live.
Dramatis personae:
Me: 46/F, Divorced with 2 kids, 2 cats, fish, a tarantula, and a 1930s house with many projects.
Chops: 47/M, Partner of 6 years, lives half-time with me, half with Xena.
Spinner: 52/M, Friend I've been on a few dates with. Divorced, Mono, wrapping his head around it all.
Xena: 47/F, Chops' other nesting partner of 6 years
Curls: 50/F, Chops' partner of 1 year

Supporting Characters:
