Divorce DIY Program

Deputy Chief Administrative Judge of the New York City Courts, Honorable Fern Fisher, with the City University of New York at York College School of Arts and Science, will inaugurate the Uncontested Divorce DIY Program in the Queens County Supreme Court on July 17.

The program will provide the public online access that allows them to prepare uncontested divorce papers for free. The program will be available at the New York State Courts website at www.nycourts.gov.

The second floor of Queens County Supreme Court has also been dedicated as the first public space for the DIY program. At the space, the public will have access to court-provided computers to help them complete the step-by-step program.

“We are very pleased to be able to provide the public hands-on access to this vital service,” the Administrative Judge for the Queens Supreme Court, Civil Term, Hon. Jeremey Weinstein said.

The DIY service is an initiative of Fisher, who is also the Director of the New York State courts access to Justice Program. The program is part of Fisher’s dedication to providing the public “meaningful access to justice for all.” The opening ceremony will be held at 2 p.m. in Courtroom 23 of the Queens County Supreme Court, locatedat 88-11 Sutphin Blvd., Jamaica.
