Fill Out and Give Each Other Financial Affidavits
Both spouses must fill out and give each other a Financial Affidavit (JD-FM-6) within 30 days of the Return Date.
Remember, this form must be signed in front of a notary public, an attorney, or a court clerk. An updated Financial Affidavit must be filed with the court at least 5 days before the hearing of any motion involving alimony, support or attorney fees or at the time your divorce is scheduled for a hearing.
Financial Affidavits are sealed by the court when they are filed and, unless otherwise ordered by the court, can be shown only to the judge, to court personnel, to the parties to the action and their attorneys, and to any guardians ad litem and attorneys appointed for any minor children involved in the matter.
However, if there is any hearing about financial issues that the parties do not agree about, the court will order the Financial Affidavits unsealed. Also, any person may file a motion to unseal the Financial Affidavits.
