Effective January 1, 2014, the applicable laws governing spousal maintenance, also known as “alimony,” have changed in many significant ways. The new laws dictate that spousal maintenance requires an examination of the gross income of both parties. Because this is determined using a complicated calculation, the court may require financial documentation. As a party to a Divorce, you should expect to produce your financial statements along with the following documents:
- Paystubs or proof of wage earnings for the preceding 90 days
- State and Federal tax returns for the preceding three years
- 90 days of banking records and statements from all accounts
- Mortgage, loan, credit card and other debt statements
- Proof or valuations of cars, trucks, motorcycles, boats, etc.
- Retirement, IRA, Mutual Fund, 401(k), pension, benefit plans, etc.
- Any other evidence of combined gross income
