I filed my financial affidavit in my original petition but have some updated expenses, can I file another financial affidavit that's more accurate? Mediation or temporary hearing has not been set yet.

  1. Yes, you can file an amended financial affidavit.


  2. Yes, that's commonly done. You should title it "Amended Financial Affidavit" or, assuming you are filing in Tampa, it has to be called "Wife's (or Husband's or Petitioner's or Respondent's) Financial Affidavit dated September ___, 2012."

  3. Yes. You just file a first amended financial affidavit


  4. Yes, in fact the rules say you have an obligation to update discovery such as the financial affidavit throughout the entire time the divorce is pending.


  5. Of course. You may file an Amended Financial Affidavit.
