You can’t get a divorce without the proper paperwork. To calculate New York State spousal support and child support you need to fill out the Statement of Net Worth. Surprisingly many family law attorneys are still completing this form by hand, which is hurting their practices.
Stop Using Outdated Manual Forms
Yes technically you can fill out the NY net worth statement by hand. New York doesn’t require electronic forms or computer printed submissions. However filling the form out takes a lot of time, time you could be spending finding new clients. In addition, it’s messy and hard to correct errors. And there will be errors. No matter how careful you are with your adding machine, you will make a mistake sooner or later.
Some of these problems can be alleviated by using a PDF form. You can download a PDF version of the form from the NY court website as well as many attorney websites. You can open the form in the Adobe reader and fill it out right on the computer. This certainly helps with some of the problems, like messy handwriting and mistake correction, but it’s still slow and inefficient.
