In previous blog entries, we have briefly summarized Steps One and Two in the usual Chicago divorce process. At this point in the Chicago divorce process, the parties will exchange financial disclosure statements. To have the best Chicago divorce process possible a party should carefully and accurately complete his/her disclosure statement. The financial disclosure statements are not filed so they do not become part of the public record. A top Chicago divorce attorney can answer questions and catch errors and omissions on a client’s draft disclosure. The financial disclosure statement is a very important part of the divorce process and tendering the statement is mandatory in Cook County and in other counties where we practice such as DuPage County.
