Florida Financial Affidavits Attorney
You and your spouse must each complete a Florida family law financial affidavit and exchange copies with each other. Consulting with financial affidavit attorney Steven D. Miller, P.A. you can make sure that this is done properly the first time.
The financial affidavits must be filled out neatly and legibly: online (print when finished) or in black ink.

There are two affidavits: < $50,000 gross income (LESS THAN $50,000) and > $50,000 gross income (MORE THAN $50,000.00).
Advice to Follow When Filing Financial Affidavits
Florida divorce court rules require that each party provide certain financial documents and a completed financial affidavit to the other party within 45 days of the service of the petition or before any temporary relief hearing. The parties or the court can modify these requirements except for the filing of a financial affidavit, which is mandatory in all cases. No Exceptions.
Print the appropriate Florida financial affidavit for you & your spouse. Give a copy of your notarized affidavit to your spouse. If there are children of the marriage, we will need some of the information from them in order to calculate child support in accordance with the Florida guidelines. Once completed, you will email or fax copies to our office as well.
