With the new discovery rules in Utah when it comes to divorce it is harder for spouses to hide assets and money. The discovery rules allow people to save money on attorney fees while getting a general outlook on their divorce financially. This does not mean that your divorce attorney will not have to do discovery but for those that have been separated for a while this will help them find out what has been going on financially. Some things that are included to be given to each Party are;
- 3 months of bank statements
- 1 year of pay stubs
- Recent tax returns
- Proof of an bills that your paying
- Proof of any debt alleged as part of the marriage
Such things that are usually included are mortgage statements, and any other documentation that tends to prove an assets value. This will help you either settle your divorce faster or give you a plan moving forward in your divorce. These financial documents will also help you prepare for Temporary Orders or an Order to Show Cause. Make sure that you give your attorney all the proper paperwork in order to allow them to protect your legal interests in your divorce. Gather the information as quickly as you can so that you can move forward.
