What Information Will A Mediator In A Divorce Proceeding Need?

Divorce agreement

If you and your spouse decide to pursue mediation, the mediator will need to see the evidence to support your assets and debts before she can help guide you to an agreement.

Parties to a dissolution action must complete both an Income and Expense Declaration and a Schedule of Assets and Debts. They must also share their last two years of tax returns, along with the last three months of paystubs or other earnings statements. This disclosure is referred to as a Preliminary Declaration of Disclosure.

A mediator can help you and your spouse compile the information you need to disclose and assist you in completing the necessary court forms. This information is essential to a full and fair mediation process.

If additional disclosure is needed, such as a real estate appraisal or business valuation, a mediator can help you and your spouse secure the services of local experts. You can share the costs of retaining experts with your spouse and ensure that each of you have access to the same information.
