  • Child custody
  • Visitation
  • Divorce
  • Orders of protection
  • Child support

DVLP’s Uncontested Divorce Clinic

Uncontested divorces happen when both parties agree to the terms of a divorce.

At DVLP’s Uncontested Divorce Clinic, once a month survivors can come in and meet with one of our attorneys who will assist the client in filling out the necessary paperwork to file an uncontested divorce in one of the five boroughs.

To find out if you qualify to file for an uncontested divorce and to make an appointment, please call 718-834-7430 ext. 1101.

We are available Mon. – Fri., 9:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. If you cannot talk during our hours of operation, leave a message and we can arrange to speak at a later time. When leaving a message, please let us know if and when it is safe for us to call you back.
