Developed in collaboration with the New York State Bar Association, this electronic forms package is replete with official forms promulgated by the New York State Office of Court Administration as well as model matrimonial forms drafted by the distinguished Willard H. DaSilva.

The model forms library includes: a Retainer Letter, Verified Complaint, Verified Answer, Judgment (Uncontested Divorce), Separation Agreement, and Prenuptial Agreement, among others.

Here are just some of the ways in which New York State Bar Association's Forms enable efficient completion and form accuracy:

•  Enter case-specific information once and it is automatically inserted throughout the form where that information is required.

•  Calculations are performed automatically, such as those in the Statement of New Worth and Child Support Worksheet.

•  After completing a form, save data into an "answer file" and use it to automatically complete other forms.

•  Dates and other information can be viewed through pop-up calendars and tables.

•  A "Find" feature allows you to locate any of the forms you need quickly and easily.

This publication is intended to provide authoritative information regarding the subjects covered. Efforts have been made to ensure that information is current and accurate, within the constraints of publication schedules. It is sold with the understanding that neither the publisher nor the authors and commentators are engaged in rendering legal services. If legal advice or other expert assistance is required, the services of a competent professional should be sought.

NOTE: THIS PROGRAM IS INTENDED FOR USE BY LICENSED ATTORNEYS. IT IS NOT A SUBSTITUTE FOR INDEPENDENT THINKING. YOU SHOULD FAMILIARIZE YOURSELF WITH RELEVANT STATUTES, CASE LAW, AND STANDARDS OF PRACTICE, AND THOROUGHLY REVIEW ALL GENERATED DOCUMENTS.
