As a dedicated New Jersey Divorce Lawyer, I am often asked about the divorce discovery phase. The discovery phase of a divorce process is exactly what it sounds like. It’s the way we discover each party’s assets – including bank accounts, credit card statements, tax returns, and any additional financial information – of which either of you may have been unaware during the marriage. The purpose of discovery is to ensure full disclosure on both sides so that both attorneys, the judge, and the court – as well as both spouses – are fully aware of each party’s assets and what will be subject to negotiation in equitable distribution.
