Divorce and Legal Separation in Albany
Overall, New Yorkers have one of the lowest divorce rates in the nation, but that certainly doesn’t mean that there still aren’t plenty of couples looking to go their separate ways. Warren County and Saratoga County typically see more divorces than Albany County within the 11-county capital region. In recent years, Albany County has seen a per-capita divorce rate of 2.56, which has placed it at number 52 of the 62 counties in New York.
If you are filing for a divorce in Albany, there are still plenty of forms to fill out and file with the County Clerk’s Office. These include a Summons with Notice or Summons and Complaint, Notice of Automatic Orders, Notice Concerning Continuation of Health Care Coverage, and Settlement Agreement. Legal separation requires a different set of documents that we can help you navigate through as well.
How “One Signature Divorce” works at We The People
We would like to provide our customers with some information about the “One Signature Divorce” process at We The People
Sometimes customers’ spouses might not be willing to sign the divorce papers, and in this situation, our customer may opt to have their spouse process served… so here’s how we handle it at We The People:
After the index number is issued by the court, we will let our customer know that we’ve prepared an Affidavit of Service Form. There is no additional fee for this form — it’s included in our basic economical price.
Now our customer can use any process server they like for the serving of their spouse, or our office can recommend an independent, reputable, licensed process serving company. Process Server charges can range anywhere from approximately $75 to $125, depending on the situation.
Once the spouse is served by the process server, the process server simply completes the Affidavit of Service Form.
If the spouse does not respond within 40 days after being served, our customer simply signs the remaining divorce documents and the divorce documents get filed at court with one signature: our customer’s.
However, if your spouse does respond and retains an attorney and/or contests, then We The People cannot continue handling your Divorce. But don’t worry, we will provide you with all of the forms prepared up to that point, so the fee you paid us is never wasted.

You may be able to save money on your bankruptcy proceedings by representing yourself and working with us to ensure the documents are prepared properly.
