Financial Asset and Property Checklist
To follow is a list of all relevant documents that you will want to collect and maintain for use in comprehending and preparing for the impending distribution of marital assets and property. You should also prepare a list of all personal property, including that acquired prior to and during the marriage. Contingent upon your particular situation, not all of the items to be listed will be required. It is recommended that next to each item, note who has actual possession and where it is physically located. If your spouse proves uncooperative in the compilation of such documentation, you may need to enlist the assistance of an attorney-at-law in order to thoroughly protect any and all rights you may have to any asset or property that your spouse may be attempting to withhold for their individual purposes.

DATE OF SEPARATION – Depending upon the laws of the state of residence, the Date of Separation – called the DOS – has a profound impact on the eventual division and distribution of property and debt, including credit, pension benefits, and other marital assets. As of the DOS, the separated spouses are now in limbo legally and financially and remain so until the actual Date of Divorce. A great deal of money may be at stake. For example, one spouse may share responsibility for any debts incurred by the other; the value of a retirement plan or other marital asset, such as residential property, may fluctuate, often by thousands of dollars.
