Discovery is the process by which the two parties in a divorce divulge their financial records, property lists, net worth statements, and similar material to one another in order for each side to develop a valuation.
In other words, discovery is how your attorney learns about your spouse’s financial situation in order to develop an appropriately structured settlement offer.
The court is only interested in your financial situation in order to ensure that a reasonable divorce settlement is agreed to.
Discovery can be a difficult phase of the divorce, especially if you suspect your spouse may be hiding assets or income, or otherwise attempting to impede the process of developing a fair agreement.
Working with an experienced Rochester divorce attorney can make it harder for your spouse to interfere with the process, and ensure that you get the best settlement possible.
