Divorce Checklist

Your divorce mediator may ask you to gather documents to prepare for your divorce. These documents should include property and debt owned both individually and together. Your mediator will ask you questions, such as the date acquired and the approximate value and title of these items. In mediation, it is helpful to prepare copies of these documents for your spouse so that you both are able to have an informed discussion and make decisions together about the disposition of your properties or debts.

If you need help preparing these documents, consider reaching out to a qualified professional such as your accountant, bookkeeper,  property appraiser or financial advisor. Gathering these documents on your own will save you time and money in the long run. It may seem overwhelming at first, but a knowledgeable and qualified mediator will help you navigate the documents you need during your divorce process.
