It’s very important for you to have a full accounting of the financial assets of your marriage.
Especially for couples who’ve been married for many years, think of the marriage as a piece of property you have equity in.
If your spouse decided to sell the family car, you’d want your fair share, right? One place to start looking for financial data is in past year income tax returns.
Those should give you some sense of your household income and expenses.
More recent financial information is often handled online.
If you need help getting your spouse to hand over passwords for banking, retirement, or investment accounts, the lawyers at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino can help.
