Making a Financial Affidavit

  • What is a Financial Affidavit?

    As the name implies, a Financial Affidavit is a sworn statement about your finances. A Financial Affidavit is often required in divorce cases to determine how much child and spousal support will be granted. When you submit a Financial Affidavit, you are making a sworn statement as to the truthfulness of the financial information that you've provided in the document, so there's little room for exaggeration or modesty. A Financial Affidavit contains information about your gross monthly income, present deductions, monthly expenses, debts/loan payments, and any assets that you own, so, to the degree that you can, gather all of your financial records before getting started.

  • Do I need an attorney to review my Financial Affidavit?

  • How much would it normally cost me to make a Financial Affidavit?

  • Does a Financial Affidavit Form need to be notarized or witnessed?

    Yes, a Financial Affidavit Form needs to be notarized. Witnesses are not legally required.

  • Do you have to file a Financial Affidavit?

    You may need to submit a Financial Affidavit if you are going through a contested divorce or child support case. Some uncontested divorce cases may also require a Financial Affidavit. Financial Affidavits are sometimes required for certain business situations, as well.

  • Is a Financial Affidavit required for a divorce?

    Most divorce cases will require a Financial Affidavit because a significant part of going through a divorce is dividing up the shared property, assets, and money, and determining spousal and child support based on each person's income and financial means. A Financial Affidavit makes it possible to determine each person's financial situation, and because it is a sworn statement, the information that is provided should be truthful and accurate.
