Welcome to Stage Three of your Collaborative Divorce: Gather Background Financial Documents
Financial Affidavits are intended to give a clear and accurate picture of the finances of the marriage. They are not only required by the Court in all divorces (even collaboratives!) but also play a critical role in settlement discussions. In this phase, you will give us the information we need to prepare your first Financial Affidavit. Then, you’ll have the opportunity to review our draft and swear to its accuracy. Your Financial Affidavit will be updated at other points during the divorce, so the more you invest in getting the first one correct, the smoother the updates are down the line.
With our client’s most often asked questions in mind, we have included helpful information that will serve to answer those questions, and set you up for a successful collaborative divorce:
- What is the financial affidavit?
- Key things to know about the financial affidavit
- What role does a financial expert play in collaborative divorce?
- What is a collaborative divorce?
