The role of a thorough discovery during divorce

The majority of divorce cases end in settlement by agreement of the parties. It is imperative that prior to signing a divorce agreement you are fully informed of all of your spouse’s assets. The method of obtaining this information is referred to as “discovery.” Discovery may include formal requests for documents and/or requiring your spouse to answer questions under oath regarding his or her assets.   Failure to obtain full and complete discovery of your spouse’s assets could result in a loss of any interest you may have to said assets in the future. The best means of protection of your interest in these assets is to ensure that any discovery that may be necessary to identify and value all of the marital assets is complete and accurate prior to entering into a divorce agreement.
