In a no-fault divorce, a couple needs only to show that their marriage has broken down irretrievably for a duration of at least six months. Once this has been established, the only remaining requirement is to decide how their divorce related issues will be handled. This can be done collaboratively or by a court order.
The divorcing couple needs to arrange:
During any matrimonial action in which alimony, maintenance or spousal support are concerns, full financial disclosure is required by both spouses under New York State Domestic Relations Law §236. Under this law, each spouse is required to complete a Net Worth Statement.
A Net Worth statement is a detailed list of:
Some additional paperwork that may be required includes tax returns and pay stubs. Whether the divorce is contested or uncontested, the financial disclosure of each spouse must be filed. Obtaining your spouse’s financial records when going through a divorce can help to determine an amount of support that is fair and not unreasonable for you and your child.
