Preparing your Financial Statement
When it comes to negotiating a property settlement during your separation and in preparation for your divorce, the main issue is to divide up the assets and liabilities.
One of the first things you will be required to do will be to complete a financial statement. On this statement you will list all assets owned by you and all liabilities incurred by you. Your ex spouse will be required to do the same. This can be relatively easy if you do not have complicated financial affairs but if you and your ex spouse have family businesses, trusts, complex investments or assets held off shore; you may require some financial assistance.
I test the truth of this statement to prove what has been claimed by your ex spouse is in fact the truth and can be proven by third party supporting documentation.
If you require assistance you can book a consultation hour and I can talk you through it or prepare it for you.
