When dealing with many family law matters, up-to-date and complete financial information from and for both parties is essential. Whether the parties are in dispute over the matter or are working together to reach an agreement, it is necessary that they both have a clear understanding of each other’s joint and individual financial circumstances.
It is not always clear to parties what should be included as an asset or how to accurately determine income (especially if you are self-employed). If there is any uncertainty as to what financial information is relevant to a file or what information may be required, a family law lawyer can assist. A list of the financial information that may be helpful to a family law matter is available on our website at: Financial Disclosure Information – Client Checklist.
