Financial Statements for Divorce
Each party to a divorce action is required to file with the Court a Financial Statement every time the case is going to go before a Judge, either for temporary orders, pre-trial conferences, the final hearing or for some other purpose.
There are two versions of the Financial Statement:
- Short form — For those persons earning less than $75,000.00 per year
- Long form — For those earning $75,000.00 or more per year
Please note: Regardless of whether you use the Short form or the Long form:
- If you are self-employed, you should first complete Schedule A before completing the remainder of the Financial Statement form.
- If you have rental income, you should first complete Schedule B before completing the remainder of the Financial Statement form.
