About this Template:

Preliminary Disclosures

When to Use: You and your spouse must exchange written information about your income, expenses, debts, and property.

Why:  The court requires you and your spouse to provide detailed financial facts to each other via the following four forms.  The first three forms are not filed with the court but exchanged with your spouse.  The last one is filed with the court.  Gathering and recording the information can be daunting and these templates can help.  Accuracy and completeness are especially important because if you leave out any required information, the court can set aside your property division.
