    Can someone shed some light on what needs to be included in an affidavit to the family court when you have been asked by the judge to supply your financials to prove you cannot afford to pay for private mediation?

    Any information or references would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Hi Beti,

    The aim of disclosure is for court (and your ex-partner) to get a better idea of your actual financial situation. Employment, wages, earnings, assets, expenses, liabilities, encumbrances should be disclosed.

    Take a look at this thread on lawanswers: "Family Law Act - De Facto and Financial Disclosure". The Family Court of Australia also has a helpful page on the duty of disclosure: here.
