Dear Attorneys,

I am going through a divorce and my attorney asked me to provide a ton of financial documents. It seems ridiculous. Do I really have to do this?


Financially Frustrated

Dear Frustrated,

A lot of clients are frustrated by the requirement to provide all of the documents for financial disclosure. It makes sense because it can be very overwhelming. However, that is the best way for your attorney to fully understand both your, and your spouse’s, financial situation. Sometimes, we do allow clients to waive financial production if they truly do not want to move forward with it. We do make sure to explain the pros and cons to that decision though, and we also ask clients who do decide to waive it to sign an informed consent for us so that they acknowledge that they truly understand that they were entitled to review these documents (and have us review them). We want to make sure that they believe that not going through the financial production process is more beneficial than harmful. If you are frustrated, you should speak with your attorney and work with them to help decide the best course of action for you.

Remember, you don’t have to navigate this challenging situation alone. Seek support from experienced professionals who can guide you through the legal process and help you make informed decisions.
