What is the purpose of your collection of these documents and what state are you in?



Customer: replied 8 years ago.

filing for divorce, I'm in Florida

Expert:  soloprac replied 8 years ago.


I would start with, at a minimum, 6 months of information. If you feel that you need more to prove your point then by all means include more information. But you need to show a pattern, or lack thereof, and the only way you are going to be able to do that is to show it through documented information.

I thought I would need the information for child support purpose or alimony?

Expert:  soloprac replied 8 years ago.
You will need it to document any claims that you have involving any monetary claim - misappropriation of marital funds, income of spouse, etc. You will most definately need it for child support purposes and/or alimony purposes also.
