If your divorce involves children your divorce case will require documents and/or legal language to address timesharing with the child and child support. Under New York law a “Parenting Plan” must be included with the Final Judgment for Dissolution of Marriage. The Parenting Plan includes the primary residence for school zoning purposes, rights of the parents, the visitation schedule, the child support, and also provides for other issues that may affect the child.
As a general rule, an uncontested divorce case with children usually contains the following documents, but again the following list may not be complete for your personal situation and set of circumstances.
The common documents are:
Original Petition for Divorce
Acceptance of Service
Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act Affidavit
Notice of Social Security Number
Parenting Plan and Child Support Guidelines Worksheet
County Court Specific Cover Sheet and related documents/forms
Final Judgment for Dissolution of Marriage
Answer and Waiver to Attend Hearing for Final Judgment
In cases involving the division of certain retirement accounts the court may require a Qualified Domestic Relations Order (QDRO). There could also be additional documents that are wise to complete as part of the divorce process but not required by or submitted to the court. One common example is a quit claim deed. This document is used when one spouse is awarded real property (house/land) and it transfers the other spouse’s interests in the property to the spouse awarded the real property.
The bottom line is that there are number of factors that determine what documents are needed in any divorce case as well as what language should or shouldn’t be contained in the required documents.
