Welcome to the New York Divorce Navigator
Only one form needs to be filled out per questionnaire. If you have already started a form, select ‘Resume Form’ to continue.
Step 1: Decide on Your Agreement Terms
To avoid your divorce becoming a contested one, you and your spouse should agree to the general terms of it before starting the actual forms. Use this Agreement Checklist to determine what needs to be addressed. Remember, whether it’s just a few unresolved issues or a complex estate to divide, our hourly mediation can help you and your spouse come to an agreement.
Step 2: Summons & Initial Filings
As the Plaintiff (spouse filing for divorce), you’ll start by filing a Summons and other initial forms. Once these are filed, you’ll have 120 days to serve your spouse. For this section, you’ll need to know 1) the terms of your Agreement, 2) any spousal or child support, and 3) future healthcare coverage.
Step 3: Final Decree, Additional Orders and Support/Maintenance
In this step, you will give the specific details of your divorce agreement. If there is no spousal or child support being paid, you only have to complete the Final Decree questionnaire.
