What Information and Documents Are Disclosed in a Divorce?

During divorce litigation, the parties exchange information with each other. Some of this information is provided through affidavits submitted to the Court with a party’s initial filing. These affidavits disclose income, assets and debts. Additional documents and information can be requested by your Dayton divorce lawyer through the discovery process, either through a request for production of documents, or through interrogatories (written questions that require a party to provide written answers under oath). Some Courts, such as the Montgomery County Domestic Relations Court , require that parties affirmatively disclose certain information and documents without a formal discovery request. The documents and information that are routinely disclosed include the following: pension and profit-sharing plans, COBRA benefits, copies of real estate deeds, copies of the title and registration to all motor vehicles, appraisals of real estate or personal property or business property in which the party holds an interest, copies of the last three years of tax returns, proof of income from all sources, and copies of the most recent statements on all bank accounts, IRA’s, stock accounts, mortgages, credit card accounts, and other debts.
