Documents Needed for Divorce

Documents Needed for Divorce in Florida

Our Experienced Attorneys in Orlando Can Guide You Through the Process

During the divorce process, separating spouses are required to present their attorneys with a wide variety of different documents to determine the terms of their divorce agreement. This information will play a key role in negotiating issues such as property distribution, asset and debt sharing, child custody arrangements, alimony, and child support payments. Collecting this information should begin as soon as possible, as the sheer amount of necessary documents can be overwhelming, to say the least. Fortunately, our firm’s Orlando divorce lawyer can help you collect all of the necessary information and guide you through the associated legal processes.

The Discovery Stage

The process of collecting and disclosing documents relevant to a divorce is known as “discovery.” Discovery is required in both contested and uncontested divorces. During this time, it is extremely important that you operate with complete honesty and do not hide any information from your attorney. Failing to present important documents can harm your case later on and possibly come with legal consequences.

Your checklist of important documents should include the following:

  1. Personal records: birth certificates of you and your children, social security cards, marriage licenses, death certificates of previous spouses, divorce records of previous marriages, and employment contracts.
  2. Financial documents: Tax returns, pay stubs, bank statements, investment accounts, retirement account statements, property leases, loan documents, insurance policies, and household budgets.
  3. Property title deeds: Joint and separately owned vehicle titles, property deeds, lists of valuables, and contents of safe-deposit boxes.
  4. Business information: Corporate tax returns for the last three years, balance sheets, profit and loss statements, corporate bylaws, partnership contracts, shareholder contracts, business credit card statements, and business property deeds.

If your divorce is based on the fault of one spouse, such as infidelity, collecting evidence that indicates this fault such as photographs, copies of emails, and text messages can strengthen your case.
