When to File and Exchange Exhibit Lists in Family Law? 

During the course of a family court proceeding, parties are generally required to submit written papers relating to their cases. These may include letters, motions, orders, and other documents. When submitting these items, parties should comply with the aforementioned rules and regulations.

The rule requiring the filing of the aforementioned paper with the court is section 214, which is part of Family Court Act article 8. In addition to requiring that each page be double-spaced with at least one-inch margins, this rule requires the inclusion of appropriate proof of service. 

There are many other statutory and rule requirements that must be met for a paper to be filed with the court. These requirements include the naming of each party and their respective attorneys. 

This requirement is not limited to papers filed for the purpose of requesting relief from a judgment or order and is also applicable to papers seeking enforcement of an order. 

The aforementioned paper must contain a citation, in a legible font, to a website or other resource that provides information on the subject matter at hand. For example, a citation may be a website that contains information about the relevant topic or a document that provides an overview of the subject matter. 

It is not uncommon for a judge to request a website or other resource that can provide additional information about an issue. This can happen when the judge is determining whether to award child support or modify an existing order or when the judge is reviewing proposed parenting arrangements. 

In addition to a website, a resource may be an electronic or hard copy publication that provides information about the subject matter at hand. For example, the New York State Courts Online website offers a wealth of information about many topics that are relevant to family courts, including divorce, child custody and support, and property division.
