Info and Documents You Need for Financial Disclosures in Colorado

Most of our clients are surprised to hear that even when they’ve reached a full agreement on all divorce-related issues, financial disclosures are still required for both parties. While Hello Divorce may be handling the bulk of your divorce process, the following is a list of the documents that you will still need to have ready so that you can get your mandatory financial disclosures completed (Step 2).

Summary of mandatory documents

  • Sworn Financial Statement
  • Income tax returns (past 3 years, personal and business federal income tax)
  • Personal financial statements (past 3 years)
  • Business financial statements (past 3 years)

If you don’t have all this information as you work through Step 2, don't worry! You can easily edit it later or send it to us to include later. We know this is a lot – but it’s the hardest part of the forms/intake process. So once this is behind you – you’ll be that much closer to completing the process. One step at a time...
