Your first legal step in getting a divorce in Queens is to file a Summons, or a Summons and Complaint, in New York’s Supreme Court.
This begins a process that includes serving your spouse with the filing, waiting for a response, and scheduling a Preliminary Conference to discuss outstanding issues.
But before you file, you owe it to yourself to consult with the most experienced Queens divorce attorneys you can find.
The difference that good legal counsel can make in a divorce settlement can be large, and even if you and your spouse are working together to achieve an uncontested action, it always helps to have knowledgeable counsel so you are fully informed at every step along the way.
