Technology has facilitated the development of secure online platforms that streamline the financial disclosure process. These platforms offer a convenient and confidential way for couples to exchange, organize, and store their financial documents.
In certain cases, mediators may recommend involving financial professionals to assist with the disclosure process. These experts can provide guidance on organizing financial information, analyzing complex assets, and ensuring accuracy.
Some mediators take a more hands-on approach to financial disclosure, guiding the couple through the process step by step. They may provide checklists, templates, or worksheets to help ensure comprehensive disclosure.
