News reports show that the New
York Legislature has passed their new state budget. The new budget
includes a drastic fee increase for the New York Office of Court Administration
(NYOCA) search. The fee for an NYOCA search will increase from $65.00 to
$95.00 when the Governor of New York, Governor Cuomo, signs the budget, which
is expected to happen any day now. The budget was passed
despite the protests of many business groups and associations.
Please continue to follow our
posts to monitor this change as we will provide updates if there is a change in
the increase, or the timing of the implementation by the state of NY.
