More than likely, you do need a new index number even if you initiated a divorce in the past.
You may not have formally closed the previous matter, but it’s likely a judge would rule the previous filing invalid years later.
While index numbers aren’t free, starting the process cleanly can help ensure that your divorce proceeds smoothly and as rapidly as possible.
Depending on how far into the process you got last time, you can expect to complete or complete again things like statements of net worth and other relevant filings.
Your interests will best be protected if you work with experienced divorce lawyers in Queens who can structure a settlement that you can live with.
