Filing a New York uncontested divorce or an annulment can seem easy to do. In the case of an uncontested divorce, there are forms available on the court’s website. For annulments though, there are no forms available to the public, but it is substantially similar to filing for an uncontested divorce.
That being said, there are over 15 documents that are ordinary filed in an uncontested divorce or annulment matter. Although there are instructions on the court’s website as to how to complete the forms, litigants are often faced with uncertainty as to the order in which documents need to be filed, served, or both and which provisions to include or strike on the form documents. One mistake could cause your case to be thrown out, waste time and money, or a combination thereof. You could even end up costing yourself a lot more money by having to re-start the action.
