Divorce proceedings generate a lot of paper. But no document is more important that your financial affidavit. Here in Palm Beach County, the financial affidavit is a sworn statement made by a party to a divorce, as to his or her income, expenses, child care costs, debts, assets, inheritence, separate property. It is more detailed than a loan application and it is the first document opposing counsel looks to pierce.
The financial affidavit is backed up by mandatory disclosure. Things such as pay check stubs, tax returns, titles to real or personal property, mortgages, leases and the like. Production of these documents is important, but by far the financial affidavit is key.
