Supplemental Pleading: Financial Affidavit

This document is a sworn statement that states the particulars of your income, deductions, monthly expenses, assets and liabilities. It is required by the court in a large number of cases. As the financial state of the parties is relevant to a wide range of issues and cases, the court needs to have a clear financial picture for the parties involved. It is a sworn document, so everything it contains must be accurate and precise. Because this is such an important document, you should have an attorney review the information before submitting it to the court. It will affect your case greatly, specially if it involves child support, alimony and equitable distribution.
