NY Uncontested Divorce Forms:
Made for Lawyers by a LawyerNo Fault Divorce Forms -Version 3.0
HotDocs Template Set (video below in action)
I developed these HotDocsŪ interactive Default Divorce forms (templates) for my own use initially but decided to release them. In the future if enough people purchase the templates I may reveal the source code of the templates so other developers can contribute to the cause or modify them for whatever reason.
The templates include (see below) all of the forms necessary to file an Uncontested Divorce in New York State with or without a divorce agreement or by default or by waiver. These forms also meet the specific requirements of Erie County Supreme Court Calendar Office.
No Fault Grounds are included. Also included are the new requirements of DRL 255 (HealthCare Notices), DRL 240 1(a-1) (Registry Check Information), New Default RJI**** and RJI Addendum**** (Registry Check Information). Certificate of Dissolution ****.

These are NOT mere boilerplate forms like the ones that come with the Uncontested Divorce Packet. These are interactive forms Hotdocs based forms. It took me many years to put these together. I am sure these are the best forms available. These are made for lawyers.
TAKE A LOOK - at the sample Findings of Fact / Referees Report to see what kind of documents these template can build.
TEMPLATES INCLUDE THE FOLLOWING: Retainer Agreement, Client's Rights, Client Questionaire, Index Number Form, Summons with Notice, Summons, Verified Complaint, Default Request for Judicial Intervention, Note of Issue, Affidavit of Service (3 types), Affidavit in Lieu of Oral Testimony, Stipulated Agreement, Affidavit of Regularity, Verified Statement pursuant to DRL 253 (removal of barriers), Affidavit pursuant to DRL 76-H, Affidavit of Non-Military Service, Defendant's Affidavit, 236-B Financial Affidavit, Child Support Worksheet, Findings of Fact/Referees Report, Judgment, Notice of Entry, Income Deduction Order, Qualified Medical Child Support Order, UCS-111*, State Case Registry Form, Certificate of Dissolution, Backing (yellow, blue - depends on your paper), post card, Support Collection Unit Information Sheet, and Part 130 Certification.
These HotDocs templates will save you and your firm an enormous amount of time and money in the preparation of uncontested divorces. They save time and money because HotDocs will ask you a series of divorce related questions and merge the data into the form in the appropriate location. The answer file for your client can be saved and used over and over again so that you don't have to type any redundant information when preparing each of the required forms.
Although these templates are intended to be sold and used by attorneys and their support staff, I am willing to sell them to others as well. If you are not an attorney, however, I strongly suggest that you retain one to handle your divorce. These templates are not going to protect your legal rights.
The templates cost $200.00-US
Once your payment is processed you will automatically be redirected to the location where you can download the installation file. You will be given FREE updates** and two weeks of free email technical support from the date of purchase, but I will NOT answer legal questions for non-lawyers*** (unless I am retained).
Free Trial Template
REQUIREMENTS: Requires at least HotDocs 2006 and Wordperfect 8.0 - These are software programs that you must have to use the templates.
*PDF requires Adobe Acrobat Reader (free software).
** You will be entitled to Free Updates when available, and I welcome any input you may have to make the forms better. Be advised that there may be some irregularities in document generation that I am unaware. Please email me with a description of the issue and I will do my best to repair it and update you.
*** If a non-lawyer purchases the templates I will not give a refund when you figure out that you really do need a lawyer to get a divorce (you do believe me). I will however, apply the $200.00 that you already paid to my retainer fee.
**** This form requires Hotdocs PDF Advantage (built into hotdocs developer) but if you do not have it you can use the fillable pdf forms that are included.
