Bank Statements in Divorce

Multi-State Divorce Lawyers Representing Clients In Financial Matters

During a divorce, courts may look at a lot of information and evidence to ensure that people receive a just result when the divorce is finalized. Bank statements often become an important piece of information to look at. Courts sometimes may order the parties to exchange bank statements voluntarily.  In other cases, the parties may agree to exchange them by consent.

Often, the parties may issue requests for production upon each other to produce the bank statements. Some parties going through a divorce may have joint bank accounts, while others may have had separate bank accounts during their marriage.

This can lead to different levels of concern regarding the bank statements and also different levels of need to exchange the bank statement information. What kind of information can bank statements show? Why are they important in a divorce case? These are some questions that many parties would ask.

Why Are Bank Statements Important?

Bank statements can show deposits into an account relating to spousal support and child support. They can be relevant where the parties’ income is disputed. This is especially true where commission, tips, or income from secondary employment is involved.

Spending habits can also show up on bank statements. This can be important as it relates to parties’ expenses in a divorce, which can be important when determining spousal support or child support.

Parties may either need to show recent bank statements or look at bank statements that go back some time. Each divorce case is different, and each case will have different needs.
