Are you going through a divorce right now, and feel that your spouse may be hiding more money than they say they have? At Simonetti & Associates, our divorce lawyers in Huntington, NY can help you with any financial disclosure problems you may have. Financial disclosure is required of both parties in the preliminary stages of the divorce and is important for each spouse to know how much the other has in assets.
Some assets that one must disclose during a divorce include:
- Mortgage statements
- Bank statements
- Credit card bills
- Tax returns
- Paycheck Stubs
- Brokerage account statements
It is important to disclose this type of information to the judge so that the judge can decide how much money the other is entitled to. Financial disclosure also helps the judge decide if the other party could be entitled to other payments, such as alimony or child support. If you can get your spouse to disclose all their financial information, you might be entitled to more money than you think.
If you think your spouse has failed to fully financially disclose all information, this can be used against them in court for future hearings. While it is always important, to be honest when filling out any type of paperwork, it is especially important to do so during a divorce, as hiding certain information can hurt you more in the end if you are dishonest.
Both parties must comply with financial disclosure, and it is a requirement for all divorces. We at Simonetti & Associates want to help you through this difficult time, we will help you with any paperwork you may need. Whatever financial information you feel the need to disclose, we will help you fill it out, and make sure that your spouse does the same. We believe all our clients deserve a fair divorce, but this can only happen if you agree to our terms.
