Divorce Actions


NYS-prepared divorce kits are available at the front counter at no charge.

Divorce actions are sealed files. They are only open to the parties involved or their attorneys. To obtain a copy of a divorce decree, there will be a one-day waiting period to allow the files to be retrieved.

If appearing in person, please bring identification (preferably a driver's license). There is a $5 fee for a certified copy. If writing to this office for a copy, please send a notarized request, a $5 fee and a self-addressed, stamped envelope.

Receipt & Appeal

When picking up the copy, you will be asked to sign a log to show that you received a copy. Please include a self-addressed, stamped envelope for the return of all receipts and time-stamped copies.

Appeal forms with instructions are offered at the front counter for actions being appealed from a lower court.
