what all must I do to obtain a "poor man's divorce" in NY state. I am in Steuben County. I am quite sure I will meet any financial requirements, as I am low income and only made like $5,000 in 2009.

  1. There is no such thing as a "poor man's divorce." You can get poor person's status by filling out the appropriate paperwork at your county courthouse. What that does is allow your case to proceed without having to pay most court fees.
