I’m in the middle of a divorce and I just received my husband’s financial affidavit. I know what he spent when we were living together, and his new expenses just don’t make sense. How can I find out if they are accurate?
During the dissolution process, both parties exchange financial production in accordance with the Connecticut Practice Book. When you do that, you will be able to see your husband’s bank statements and credit card statements. That will allow for you (or your attorney) to average out expenses and see if his financial affidavit is accurate. That said, while there are some exceptions, each party’s exact expenses are less relevant than the parties’ assets and liabilities to be divided. If you do have concerns, you should consult with your attorney if you have one. If you do not have an attorney, you should at least schedule a consult with one so that you ca be familiar with what to look for in (ad how to analyze) your husband’s financial situation.
