These are the best resources I’ve found so far for dealing with divorce in New York, including child support, property division, and the other legal issues you face when you’re going through divorce in New York.
You can also use New York Divorce Online, which offers the following advantages: (1) You prepare the papers online without paying any money; (2) You decide only after the papers are prepared whether you want to pay for them; and (3) The charge is only $49.00 for all the required documents, including the marital settlement agreement. Looks like a pretty good deal to me.
BlumbergExcelsior has a professionally produced program to guide you through the process of an uncontested divorce without using a lawyer. They charge $39.95. You download the program and try it, and you pay only if you decide to print the documents. I downloaded and ran it through some of its paces, and it seems to work smoothly.
Here’s the link to New York’s office for child support enforcement. I love their Interactive Tour of Child Support, which is more like an online course. Very thorough. DivorceNet has provided a worksheet for figuring child support.
