Best Way To Divorce: Step 2 – Preliminary Disclosure
Declaration of Disclosure and Schedule of Assets and Debts:
The Preliminary Disclosure documents include a Declaration of Disclosure (FL-140) and Schedule of Assets and Debts (FL-142). In addition, the Petitioner must provide their spouse with copies of all tax returns he/she filed within the last 2 years.
Respondent must also serve Preliminary Disclosures on the Petitioner within 60 days:
The Respondent must also serve Preliminary Disclosures on the Petitioner within 60 days of filing a response.
It makes sense to begin discussing financial settlement as soon as both spouses have exchanged their preliminary declaration of disclosure.
You will not be able to obtain a divorce without completing your financial disclosures. You may be subject to sanctions (fines), and may even lose the assets you refuse to disclose.

What Does A Divorce Strategist Do, Exactly?
Through my own experience of family break up, of not having any legal protection (no living together agreement), and watching my married friends get divorced and the misery and cost and conflict that came about, I felt a need to share what I have learned.
I created live events to help families to be more resilient; a Directory of Experts focused on non-adversarial ways to divorce (mediation, collaborative law – all keeping people out of court); and a way to create a Living Together Life Plan and Agreement so those who don’t marry will not end up in the situation I found myself in.
And as the Alternative Divorce Guide and the UK’s (possibly only) Divorce Strategist, I am always happy to guide people towards the right person to talk to at the right time, and offer them a wealth of resources through my online CoParenting in a Box.
Because I am an ‘independent voice’ and professional speaker and campaigner for better ways to divorce, I’m often asked for my opininions on divorce-related issues by journalists.
“Suzy was able to offer really important and comforting advice on the whole process and offer positive alternatives to help guide me through this stressful time. Her contact list is extensive and she was able to put me in touch with a many great people who were also able to offer guidance and make the process much less painless. I’m really glad I met her and feel like my journey through this difficult period has been much more positive because of it”
“Wow you are an amazing resource Suzy!!
I liked the way things are set out. I like the information, it makes sense. And it is supportive
Thank you so muc
