If you’re considering beginning a divorce in Brooklyn, the best way for you to protect your interests is to gather as many financial records as are available to you in order to have documentation of the full financial picture of your marriage.
These will include several years of tax filings, records for property and assets you jointly and individually own, statements from bank, investment, and retirement accounts, and credit cards you share with your spouse.
Expect that you and your spouse will both have a vested interest in presenting your marriage’s financials in a way that maximizes your own positions, so the spouse with the most complete set of records stands the best chance of winning disputes.
You’ll both be focused on limiting your exposure to loss and maximizing your chances for gain, so understanding the details of your financial position is critical to the best outcome in a divorce.
The attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino can not only get you started on what records to collect, but can also help you understand how they’ll be used and what the information means for you.
