Each party must file a financial statement that fully discloses all income, deductions from income, assets, expenses and debt. There are separate sections for business ownership and rental property, known as "Schedules." If applicable, these schedules must be attached to the entire financial statement, along with tax records reflecting income, such as W-2 forms. Each party must sign their statement "under the pains and penalties of perjury." This may be the most important document filed in any divorce and must be completed with accuracy and full disclosure.
