Financial Documents

Financial documents are some of the most important things to gather when going through a divorce. These documents outline all of the assets that you and your partner have between the two of you, most of which will be divided in the divorce. These documents include but aren’t limited to:

  • Bank Statements
  • Tax Returns
  • Proof Of Income
  • Retirement Account Statements
  • Mortgage Statements
  • Proof of Bonds & Stocks
  • Loan Documents
  • Property Tax Statements
  • Utility Bills
  • Proof of Any & All Remaining Assets
  • Proof of Prenuptial Agreements (If you have any)

Divorce Settlement Agreement

Once the divorce process has ended, you will receive a divorce judgment and decree. These documents contain the court rulings concerning custody of children, payment of maintenance or support, property division, the splitting of funds including retirement accounts, as well as any debt division. . This is a legally binding document and both you and your ex will need to follow or you could be held in contempt.
