After a petition for divorce is filed with the Jefferson County Court, one of the next steps is dealing with and submitting the Sworn Financial Statement. It is very important that this document is filled out correctly, disclosing everything and including attachments, and filed within the timeframe. An experienced Wheat Ridge divorce attorney can help guide you through the process and make sure there are no issues with the filings on your end.
A sworn financial statement (SFS) is a very important part of an Arvada, Wheat Ridge, or Jefferson County divorce, legal separation, allocation of parental responsibilities (if you have children, but were never married), or modification of alimony or child support proceedings. It provides the court and other involved parties details about your monthly income, expenses, debts, and assets. The SFS is a required document that must be notarized and filed with the Jefferson County Court. A copy must also be provided to your former spouse or partner, or their family law attorney. The information provided on the sworn financial statement must be accurate, complete, and true to avoid problems down the line - including possible criminal proceedings.
