My divorce was in Florida two years ago. Since then my ex moved

Customer Question

My divorce was in Florida two years ago. Since then my ex moved to Carmel NY with our minor children and I moved to Charlotte, NC. I lost my job and I am trying to petition the courts for modification of alimony and support.

I filed a petition in NY and the magistrate there told me to register the divorce order in NY. I have made over 50 phone calls to county clerks in NY and FL. I also spoke with people at the NY and FL child support enforcement units. No one know how to get it registered in NY. So my questions are: Where do I register the Divorce Order and how? Please, don't ask me to call anyone. I need specific answers.

If they are living in Carmel, it has to be filed with the County clerk in Putnam County where Carmel is located. You can send them by mail to the clerk of the court with a self addressed envelope and a copy of the motion for proof that it was filed.

I stated that I have already spoken with the county clerk in NY and they told me to call the child support enforcement unit in Florida and they would register the order. They in turn sent me to the Palm Beach County Clerk in Florida, who then sent me back to NY.

So send a copy of the order to both county clerks with a copy that it was sent to both counties with a letter explaining why you are doing it. Send them copies of both letters explaining you are getting red tap from both counties and ask for a conference call with both clerks if necessary in order to get the order filed and executed.
