No, in many cases, you’ll have the option of waiving the transfer of statements of net worth and other financial information in an uncontested Brooklyn divorce.
Your attorneys should include a statement or stipulation in the settlement agreement noting that you both waived discovery so that the court knows you chose to forego that piece of the divorce, but if your settlement is otherwise in order, it’s unlikely that the judge will ask for more documentation.
You can save yourself significant hassle if you work with experienced Brooklyn divorce attorneys who can properly draft a settlement agreement that protects you and keeps your private information away from prying eyes.
While New York courts go to great pains to prevent unauthorized access to divorce records, in the era of smart phones and instant access to the web, precautions only make sense.
