A: It really depends on what you are going to Court for. You say assets have been divided. What about debts? Do either you or your spouse seek attorneys fees? The fact that you have lived separate for two years is not really a factor. As a general rule, you need a recent Financial Disclosure Form anytime you are going to Court. If it's related to custody at all, then support may again become an issue. Also, if you or the other party have asked for attorneys fees then it would also be required for the judge to make that decision. But, again, it really depends on what the status of your case is.
