About The Commission

The Matrimonial Commission was established in 2004, by then-Chief Judge Judith S. Kaye, to examine the different facets of the divorce process in New York and recommend reforms as appropriate.

In February 2006, the Commission submitted its Report to Chief Judge Kaye, recommending changes in several areas, including the selection and education of judges, the appointment and regulation of neutral experts and law guardians, access to justice, and the administration of the legal process. Thereafter, the Commission completed its work.
