Documents to Bring to Your Divorce Attorney

Posted by Michael G. Butash | Jul 06, 2019 | 0 Comments

One of the most difficult aspects of dealing with a divorce is for the court to try to establish a fair way to divide up marital property between two individuals. In order to do this, many documents have to be taken into consideration but a divorce attorney. Brooksville residents might not know the extent of how much documentation they need, and they think that proof of their monthly income or of a mortgage would be enough, but this is not true. Here are some documents anyone should bring to their divorce attorney.

Payment or Income Validation

The amount of money a person makes is a huge indicator for courts to determine how they are going to effectively divide up marital property between two individuals. It is important to note for some people involved in a divorce that one year of income is not enough, and it is usually always advised that an individual brings documentation for three to five years to their divorce attorney. Brookville residents not only need to bring their individual income tax returns, but also their business income takes returns if they own one. Apart from income documentation of the past, it is also important that individuals bring proof of their current income to help determine how to divide up marital property.

Housing Bills

To help better understand the income of two individuals, it is also important that a person brings all the financial information pertaining to their home to their divorce attorney. Brooksville residents should try to find documents pertaining to their mortgage payments, as well as property tax statements and even utility bills. All of this information in conjunction with documents validating income will help a court better determine how much of their assets should be split among the two individuals involved with the divorce process.
