Contact a family law attorney to assist you. Just because one party does not agree to the divorce does not mean you are not able to get one. There are procedures that can be taken to get you the divorce.

Some attorneys like more information, some even like last 4 of account number, to eliminate questions. Other attorneys prefer less and would just say 50% of the retirement accounts to go to the other person to allow some flexibility. No set rule - both have pros/cons...

Typos are natural. It won’t get dismissed because of that, if you make it an issue the other party only has to resubmit it as an amended petition, but the petition is not the final decree, so it’s really not a major issue ‘normally’.

Research the particular law (statute) to find a recent case in which an appellate court in your jurisdiction ruled that the law remains valid and enforceable. Focus most closely on cases within the last 20 years or so. I would use LEXIS or WESTLAW.
