HOW TO MAKE AN APPOINTMENT
To Make An Appointment, You Have To Complete The Following Two (2) Steps
Important Note: In order for APS to take your case, You or Your Spouse have to live in the NYC area
(any one of the 5 boroughs), Westchester, Rockland, Nassau or Suffolk County (these are the only
Counties APS handles).
APS charges travel fees to all the Counties reference above, except within the NYC area. If you do not
want to pay the travel fees (i.e. to Westchester County), APS can draft the divorce documents and mail
them to you, and you will be responsible to submit the documents to the County Clerk's Department,
which is quick and easy to do and APS will provide you the detailed instructions to assist you along
the way (making the divorce process simple and easy to do).
Very Important Note: Per the Court, if your case is filed in Nassau, Suffolk, Westchester or Rockland
County and you have a Child (or children) in your divorce, you have to file a Stipulation Of Settlement.
APS charges a fee of $51.80 to draft the Stipulation for you.
NOTE: In addition to a Child in your divorce, if there is property as well, then the fee will be more,
depending on the amount (volume) of information to be incorporated into the document.
TO START THE DIVORCE PROCESS
FIRST, you need to complete the Divorce Information Form below. The purpose for completing the
form is to provide APS with all the required information to prepare the initiating documentation(s)
(i.e. Summons with Notice) for an Uncontested Divorce.
You can complete the Divorce Information Form in one (1) of three ways, as explained below.
1) On the INTERNET - Click Here and you can provide the requested information directly via APS
website, but will be unable to save the information on your computer; OR
2) MICROSOFT WORD DOCUMENT - Click Here and you can type the information directly into the
Divorce Information Form, save it on your PC, and e-mail the form to APS (as an attachment); OR
3) PDF FILE - Click Here and you can print out the Divorce Information Form, write the information in the
form and either e-mail it as an attachment, send by regular mail or fax the form to 646-537-2535.
SECOND, as a result of the daily amount of inquiries and cases handled by APS ALL
APPOINTMENTS HAVE TO BE RESERVED. If you would like to reserve an appointment, please be
prepared to make a minimum deposit of $50.
The payment has to be done prior to the scheduling of an appointment (which also includes the
commencement of any work, as referenced above).
Note: The $50 deposit will be deducted from APS fee (i.e. $299 - $50 = $249 remaining balance).
You also have the option to pay the full amount of APS fee as well (as indicated below).
(Q.) How can I process the payment of $50?
(A.) You can do one (1) of the following below:
1) Pay with a Money Order (mail it to the PO Box address on the contact us page, and payable
to Anderson Paralegal Services), OR
2) Pay with a Debit or Credit Card securely via PayPal (please scroll down below for instructions).
Note: If you do not have a PayPal account, you can still process the payment via PayPal.
If you use a Debit or Credit Card to process the payment, you will have to make a payment in the
amount of $51.80 ($1.80 is to cover the PayPal service fee).
(Note: If you decide to pay the full amount of $299 in advance (for a divorce with No Children) with
a Debit or Credit Card, then you will have to make a PayPal deposit in the total amount of
$308.24 (which includes the service fee).
(Note: If you decide to pay the full amount of $399 in advance (for a divorce with Children) with a
Debit or Credit Card, then you will have to make a PayPal deposit in the total amount of
$411.23 (which includes the service fee).
VERY IMPORTANT NOTE (Payment Made By Someone Else): If someone else makes the
payment on your behalf (i.e. your Spouse, Family Member or Friend), then that person has
to sign an AFFIDAVIT before a notary that authorizes that payment.
APS will prepare the AFFIDAVIT for you (after the form and deposit has been received).
VERY IMPORTANT NOTE (Your Business Account): You cannot use a Debit or Credit
Card in your BUSINESS NAME. If the payment is received in your BUSINESS NAME, then
APS cannot take your case.

BUSINESS NAME, sorry APS cannot take your case. The payment has to be in your name

(Q.) How soon will APS contact me for an "appointment" after I submit the Form
(A.) It takes APS approx. 1-2 business days to send you (via E-mail) the Summons with Notice
document to review (if no additional information is needed).
Note: The Summons with Notice will contain the information you provided in the form. This is the
document to get your case started in Court. The $50 deposit is for the preparation of
