Sample Financial Statement

Before entering into a prenuptial or premarital agreement, each prospective spouse must make a complete and honest financial disclosure to the other. This should include all income, assets and debts and it may prove to be a very helpful tool in preparing a prenuptial agreement and, even beyond that, in preparing for marriage. Accurate financial statements help couples to identify their property and their respective rights to that property, and also to engage in proper financial planning at the outset of their marriage. With the clear understanding of property ownership during marriage that can result from accurate financial statements, couples may be able to avoid many of the financial frustrations that can unfortunately tear down an otherwise healthy relationship.

You may be asking how to get started with this process. It's always helpful to have a guide as you go through your financial statements and bill histories. The following form can be useful in putting together your financial statement and in verifying that the information you receive from your spouse is complete. However, this is only a starting point. This form should be used in conjunction with the advice and counsel of a family law attorney familiar with the marital property laws in your state. After all, your state may have unique laws related to marital property and prenuptial agreements that an attorney can help to explain to you before signing the dotted line.
