Getting together your personal documents early saves you time and money and saves your lawyer having to repeatedly request them off you. It will allow you or your lawyer to be on the front foot and get ahead of the other party. Here’s part three of our top docs list:
- any documents that can verify the assets, liabilities and superannuation that each of you and your partner held at the commencement of the relationship;
- any documents that can verify the assets, liabilities and superannuation that each of you and your partner have at the present time;
- current resumes or CVs;
- tertiary and/or professional qualification documents;
- your Will and Power of Attorney; and
- an inventory of (and perhaps photographs of) furniture and other valuable chattels.
