One of the first documents that your family law attorney will assign to you is a financial affidavit. This document requires your income, expenses, assets and liabilities. Each category is broken down into more categories. This task can be quite daunting and overwhelming.
Recently, it's taken us a minimum of 30 hours to fill out a financial affidavit for our high net worth client. Your attorney will assign you a deadline on completion of this document. Typically 30 days.
You can hire a Certified Divorce Financial Analyst to assist you with the Financial Affidavit.
Tip: Pull a recent copy of your credit report to find a list of some of your liabilities.
