My attorney can just get all the financial stuff together for me…right?
Having your attorney gather your financial documents and go through them in detail is going to cost you a fortune. And no one cares as much about your money as you.
That's why it makes sense for you to gather your own account statements, tax returns, and other important financial documents. But how will you know where to start?
Walk into court with proof.
Know exactly what your money has been spent on and whether there are any accounts you didn't know about. Get the proof you need for court. In the United States, only a spouse can testify on behalf of financial account information. If your divorce lawyer has their paralegal conduct the research, that paralegal cannot testify.
You only get one shot at the financial settlement you need.
This is about setting yourself and your family up for the future. You need to get everything you can now. Learn more about what you are entitled to in your divorce →
