Finalizing Your Uncontested Divorce: Filling Out the Court Documents, Part I

06 Nov

Both the plaintiff and the defendant must fill out a Financial Affidavit at least 5 days and not more than 30 days before your court hearing.

 This form must be signed in front of a notary public, an attorney, or a court clerk. Financial Affidavits are sealed by the court when they are filed and, unless the court orders differently, 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.
