As a dedicated Saratoga Divorce Lawyer, I am often asked about a period of time during the divorce that you exchange financial paperwork with your spouse.
- The divorce process includes a period discovery during which spouses exchange financial information.
- The court establishes a schedule within which the exchange of that information is to be completed.
- Civil practice rules and local rules will govern the timely disclosure of that information. If one spouse is unwilling to provide disclosure, a court order can compel him or her to turn over the required financial information.
- Continued refusal may preclude the recalcitrant person from providing financial information at trial.
