April 22, 2017
Some might ask how do I get certified copies of my NY divorce papers? You can obtain these papers or any other Court Order of divorce judgment be going to the County Clerk Office in the county where the divorce occurred and was entered.
It is not too difficult. Just bring your credit card or cash. There will be a fee for copies and certified copies.
However because divorce judgments are not public records only some people may obtain them, such as the party themselves of an attorney representing them.
Let us say you forgot where the divorce was entered, then what? Well, then try the New York e-court website. Three you can search for your case number by only providing the party's name.
Another way is to get a divorce papers certificate from the NYS Department of Health, which also charges for this service.
