I'm going through a messy divorce - what documents do I have to give to my spouse? What documents does my spouse have to share with me?

Figuring out how much property a married couple owns and getting an accurate picture of the family finances is an essential part of the divorce process. The procedure for gathering and providing this information to the other side is known as "discovery." There are several ways to obtain discovery. The first is by way of a request for disclosure and production where the parties ask for certain items from each other. Another method is through interrogatories, which is a list of questions that you send to the opposing side. Sometimes depositions are used in divorce cases. During a deposition, sworn testimony is taken from a party and any witnesses involved, and anything said during a deposition can be used in court. A written list of facts, known as admissions of facts, is served on a party asking that party to either admit to or deny each fact.
