Help with Final Divorce Decree

Brooklyn, NY |

Hello. My husband and I were involved in a contested divorce. The Stipulation of Settlement was signed and filed with SUPREME COURT OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK
COUNTY OF KINGS. The Inquest was made before the judge and now I am supposed to file Final Judgement of Divorce. I was given a feed back on how to do it myself, and have the legal form. However, I still would like some help on how to fill it out correctly and how to request/include the transcript from court. I was wondering if a NYC attorney would be willing to walk me through this process for a fee. If someone is interested, please let me know. Thank you in advance.

I would just add that the help office is in the basement and the matrimonial clerk is on the 10th floor in Kings County. Good luck.
