Cases in Family Court and Supreme Court

Cases in Family Court and Supreme Court

All child support and custody matters involving children born to unmarried parents will be heard in Family Court. However, spousal support and child support matters may be heard by Family Court in the case of married parents. Family Court cannot adjudicate a divorce case.

All actions for divorce, separation or annulment will be heard by the Supreme Court of the State of New York (a trial court, and not the highest court in the State, despite what it sounds like).
