Affidavit of Means – Financial Disclosure
It is mandatory for all parties to provide a sworn Affidavit of Means and to provide the appropriate vouching documentation. An Affidavit of Means provides details of all assets, income, debts and liabilities, weekly or monthly expenditure and pension information (where it is applicable) and must be supported by evidence such as receipts, bills, bank statements and other proofs.
Case progression is a system in the Circuit Family Court, which ensures cases are progressed as swiftly as possible and that all receipts and information necessary by either party is exchanged in a timely manner. This procedure is overseen by a County Registrar. It is necessary to be able to exchange up to date information in advance of case progression so that any case can be progressed to hearing. If there is a delay in exchanging information by either party, this can cause delays in having the case assigned a hearing date.
