Divorces sometimes result in a plethora of paper consisting of documents, forms, pleadings, etc. However, this time of year is a good time for getting financial documents. In preparation for income taxes, employers and financial institutions such as banks, investment firms, etc. issue tax documents relative to income, dividends, interest, etc. The documents are a good source of information when it comes to a divorce settlement.

For example, the employer’s W-2 shows income as well as money put into a retirement account. The statements from the bank usually show the type of account, the last four digits of the account numbers, and the amount earned in interest or dividends. Those documents are a reminder as to where assets are located and may give a clue to the principal amount being held.

The documents you use to prepare your federal and state income tax returns, as well as the tax returns themselves, are very useful to your divorce attorney.
