COMPROMISE ORDERS

The applicant must comply with the requirements of CPLR §§1207 & 1208, Uniform Rule §202.67 and/or EPTL§ 5-4.6.

Applications for compromise orders must be filed electronically through NYSCEF or where the action does not participate in NYSCEF, by mail to the Motion Support Office, at 360 Adams Street, Room 227. Movant must email Danielle Menendez at dmenend@nycourts.gov to confirm receipt of the petition/motion and to provide a courtesy copy on non-e-filed actions.

Defense counsel must be noticed on all applications and documents submitted to the Court and must appear at the hearing, if scheduled, unless their appearance and receipt of supporting papers have been waived. All such waivers must be in writing and provided to the Court. The waiver must state that all remaining parties (other than the applicant) have waived service of the notice of appearance at the hearing and notice of the papers and communication in support of the application.

Upon submission of all required documents, a hearing may be scheduled and conducted virtually by way of Microsoft Teams, based on the Court’s discretion. If necessary, chambers will send an email/letter of instruction to request revisions and/or missing documents. Counsel for plaintiff(s) must appear at the hearings with their clients.

Pursuant to 22 NYCRR 202.5(e)(2), the Court requires that the infant-petitioner’s full name and date of birth appear in the order. Questions or concerns on this matter may be addressed to chambers.

Additionally, all submissions shall include either a letter offering the proposed settlement amount or a stipulation of the parties reflecting same.
