What Documents are Needed to Start A Divorce?
When you decide that you want to initiate a divorce proceeding and contact an attorney, my office for instance, I recommend that you try to provide your attorney with whatever financial information that you can. Bring in your tax returns for as far back as you can get them. Bring in information with regard to retirement benefits and life insurance. Bring in your mortgage statement, bills with regard to property taxes, and utilities, and food, and clothing, all so the attorney can understand what your financial situation is. Even more importantly, what the financial situation of your spouse is.
