Court Program Makes Uncontested Filing Easy
The Uncontested Divorce DIY program was inaugurated at Queens County Supreme Court in Jamaica last Thursday, July 17.
As described, the program enables members of the public to access an online program where they can prepare uncontested divorce papers free of charge. The program is available on the New York State Courts website, www.nycourts.gov.
Judge Fern A. Fisher, deputy chief administrative judge of the New York City courts, led the initiative; she is also director of the New York State Courts Access to Justice Program.
The Uncontested Divorce DIY program is part of Justice Fishers’ dedication to providing the public “meaningful access to justice for all.”
The first public space dedicated to the DIY program is on the Queens County Supreme Court’s second floor, where there will be access to court-provide computers to complete this step-by-step program.
“We are very pleased to be able to provide the public hands-on access to this vital service,” said Judge Jeremy S. Weinstein, administrative judge for the Queens Supreme Court Civil Term.
The Queens County Supreme Court is located at 88-11 Sutphin Blvd. in Jamaica. For more information, call 1-718-298-1100 or visit www.nycourts.gov.
