Husband and wife are both in agreement, with little to no financial issues to resolve.
You can go through the NYS E-courts system to obtain the paperwork that you need. If you would like assistance, you can review my website at www.NYDivorceNow.com. My office charges a very moderate fee to prepare all of the documents and to ensure that everything is properly filed for an uncontested divorce.
Proceed to the Office of Court Administration (for New York State) website and drill down to the forms necessary for an uncontested divorce. You can opt to use an attorney to fashion the separation/opting out agreement if necessary. The risk is that you may not address things which will need to be addressed without consulting an attorney. Also, you will need guidance for the proper service and filing of legal papers, including filing fees. At least seek a consultation with a matrimonial attorney, since there's alway a hitch, so don't hurt yourself.
All the paperwork you need to submit an uncontested, no-fault divorce in Kings county is on the court's website at
Detailed instructions on how to fill out those forms can be found at:
All forms can be downloaded and tailored to your specific situation. If you have children, there should be a separate custody and child support agreement included. Make sure to file and buy an index number, the fee for which is $210.00. Also include an uncontested RJI and the RJI matrimonial addendum, which is required even though you will not have to go before a judge. When all paperwork is ready to be submitted, there will be an additional Note of Issue fee which is $125.00. After the papwork is submitted, it is taking Kings county any where from 5-10 months to review submissions.
