Necessary Documents You Should Have When Preparing Information For Your Divorce Lawyer

Have you come to the conclusion of divorce, you need to start gathering documentation that will be required during the divorce process. Either you use an attorney or go the Pro Se route (Do-It-Yourself), the following is a listing of documents that you want to have ready for a divorce attorney to review:

Complete addresses, list of phone numbers, and Social Security numbers of any kids that may be involved and both spouses.

Full names of all involved, birth dates of children and spouses involved, Social Security numbers for all children and spouses involved, and addresses of children of the marriage, and the schools they attend and current grades.

The exact date and county the marriage occurred.

Knowledge about any previous marriage of either spouse, comprising of a certified copy of the divorce order.

A copy of each domestic arrangements (e.g., a prenuptial agreement).

Knowledge about any previous legal actions between the spouses or including any of the children including restraining orders or domestic violence.

Dates and facts about any prior separations, efforts at reconciliation, or marriage counseling.

How to file for divorce without a lawyer.

Financial Information:

Your prior three year’s income tax statements, and any relevant data from the IRS.

Knowledge about your current working income, copies of pay stubs, financial documents for any businesses you or your spouse controls or has a part ownership in.

A complete list of tangible assets and debts of both spouses.

Copies of any personal statements for credit, such as mortgage statements that often contain a wealth of important information.

Copies of personal, combined, or business bank account numbers and statements, both joint or separate to combine checking and savings.

Be certain to keep the originals of each document and give your divorce attorney copies.

You should constantly have, in your possession a photocopy or the original of each document you provide your divorce lawyer.
