YOU WILL NEED TO PROVIDE CERTAIN PERSONAL INFORMATION: Some Courts have mandatory discovery procedures where each party must voluntarily turnover financial information to the other side (Montgomery County requires mandatory disclosure of financial information). This helps both parties understand what marital and non-marital assets and liabilities are involved in the case and helps facilitate settlement. Further, Ohio rules of civil procedure allow each party to demand certain information and answers under oath to certain questions from the other party. Finally, certain courts, such as Greene County Domestic Relations Court and Montgomery County) require mandatory pre-trial statements be filed with the court (that contain an offer of settlement) that must be completed and exchanged between the parties before the pre-trial with the judge.
