    Answered . The Flroida Family Rules 12.285 are mandatory on cases such as this. In them the Florida Supreme Court has dictated that all persons paternity as well as divorces and others are required to file nbot only financial affidavits but "financial disclsure." Type the following in to your browser for a list of what is required: "Florida Family Rule 12.285."
