Why do Tampa family law attorneys make their clients prepare financial affidavits?

Ultimately one of the most common questions to the Tampa Family Law Attorneys of Hackworth Law concerns the need and requirement for a party to continually file new, updated financial affidavits.  While this is an undoubtedly and frustrating process, it is required under the Florida rules governing family law cases.  For your convenience, we have provided a link to a blank affidavit, so you can evaluate and consider it.

The policy behind this is clear – people’s financial situations are constantly changing and evolving.  Given the nature of family law cases, it is important for both parties to have a full, fair and accurate disclosure of the financial situation of both parties.  This is especially true in lengthy divorce cases, where they make take years to complete.  Someone’s financial situation can change significantly over the course of a divorce, especially if they own their own business or work in a profession with an irregular salary or income, like a sales or commission based profession.

Also, it is critical for Tampa family law attorneys to have updated financial affidavits for their use to determine whether a party has a new relationship and is squandering resources on their new paramour.  This can prove to be critical during the equitable distribution of the divorce because it provides an accurate accounting of the value of their assets and debts.
