Getting a divorce
We help women obtain both contested (litigated) and uncontested (non-litigated) divorces. We provide free information about the law and what happens in Supreme Court, which is the only court in New York that can grant a legal divorce.
We also advise women about what is likely to happen in their divorce cases and about governmental and private agency resources that may be helpful to them. In as many cases as we can, we provide free volunteer lawyers to represent women in their divorce cases in Supreme Court.
