Divorce Papers

A Judgement of Divorce is the court order to legally end a marriage in New York. A Judgement of Divorce has two main purposes:

  • Informing the involved parties about their rights and obligations under the terms and requirements of the order
  • Ensure that the parties understand their respective rights and responsibilities

Most judgements of divorce or divorce decrees cover issues concerning alimony, property division, custody, visitation and child support. One of the most important goals of the divorce process is the creation of an equitable distribution of marital assets and debts.

In order to accomplish this, an understanding of what is owned and what is owed is required. Individuals seeking a divorce must gather documentation regarding each asset owned by the couple and the individuals.

Being thorough is import so the information must include such things as the present value of assets, where and when the assets were purchased and how they were purchased. Divorce judgements and decrees are generally archived in the vital records office of your courthouse. In most cases, the court clerk or your attorney will mail you a copy of your final decree.
