If you are dealing with a divorce, you may also find yourself dealing with a lot of requests for documentation from your divorce attorney. Knowing what is needed may help make for a less stressful time, and the quicker you are able to accommodate those document requests the faster the entire ordeal will be over with. Read on to learn about some commonly used and requested documents to be familiar with and have handy during this time.

This is actually an order and a document, and even if it is not a requirement in your state, you should strongly consider the value of this agreement, which spans the time period between your separation and the final decree. It should be noted that many of the issues covered in this agreement can be folded into the final divorce decree. Since this period can encompass several months, it just makes sense to create some provisions to deal with important issues such as:
You are almost guaranteed to be asked to provide the past two years (or more) of tax returns by your attorney, so have some copies made available. If you are unable to procure those documents, you can request them directly from the IRS.

Financially, they bought me a new car when I was sixteen. They also paid for my college expenses. Many parents do the same for their kids. They want to provide for them in the present while safeguarding their futures.

A reputable attorney can establish beneficial trusts for your kids. On this blog, you will learn about the benefits of consulting with an attorney about setting up trusts for your children.
