What is the law (CPLR) in NY that Plaintiff's attorney submits the proposed Judgment of Divorce?

Q: Received a document from someone and it's written by an attorney who states "with respect to the complainant's claim regarding the Judgment of Divorce, it is routine practice, INDEED THE LAW that the plaintiff's attorney, in a matrimonial action submits the proposed Judgment of Divorce."
Where is this law? Is it in the CPLR for NY, and is it changeable and if so, under what circumstances? This is a seasoned matrimonial lawyer writing "indeed the law that the plaintiff's attorney, in a matrimonial action submits the PROPOSED Judgment of Divorce. Would like to know where that law is and how to find it. Thank you.

A: David's Answer: You won't find it - there is no statute or regulation pertaining to same. Either side may submit the Judgment - indeed, if the other party disagrees with the proposed judgment, s/he may submit a counter-judgment. Schedule a consult with a White Plains Family Law attorney for a full assessment.
