respondent is served by constructive service and does not answer. You should use this form to notify
the court and the other party that you have complied with the mandatory disclosure rule.
Each party must provide the other party with the documents listed in section 2 of this form if the

What should I do next?
After you have provided the other party all of the financial information and documents and have filed
this form certifying that you have complied with this rule, you are under a continuing duty to promptly
give the other party any information or documents that change your financial status or that make the
information already provided inaccurate. You should not file with the clerk any of the documents listed
in the certificate of compliance other than the financial affidavit and the child support guidelines
worksheet. Refer to the instructions regarding the petition in your case to determine how you should
proceed after filing this form.
Where can I look for more information?
Before proceeding, you should read “General Information for Self-Represented Litigants” found at
the beginning of these forms. The words that are in bold underline in these instructions are defined
there. For further information, see Florida Family Law Rule of Procedure 12.285.
Special notes…
You may provide copies of required documents; however, the originals must be produced for
inspection if the other party requests to see them.
Although the financial affidavits are based on individual gross income, either party may ask the other
party to complete the Family Law Financial Affidavit (Long Form), Florida Family Law Rules of
Procedure Form 12.902(c), by serving the appropriate interrogatory form. (See Standard Family Law
Interrogatories, Florida Family Law Rules of Procedure Form 12.930(b) (original proceedings) or (c)
(modification proceedings)).
Any portion of the mandatory disclosure rule may be modified by order of the judge or agreement of
the parties. Therefore, you and your spouse may agree that you will not require each other to
produce the documents required under the mandatory disclosure rule. This exception does not apply
to the Financial Affidavit, Family Law Rules of Procedure Form 12.902(b) or (c), which is required in all
cases and cannot be waived.
Remember, a person who is NOT an attorney is called a nonlawyer. If a nonlawyer helps you fill out
these forms, that person must give you a copy of a Disclosure from Nonlawyer, Florida Family Law
Rules of Procedure Form 12.900(a), before he or she helps you. A nonlawyer helping you fill out these
forms also must put his or her name, address, and telephone number on the bottom of the last page
of every form he or she helps you complete.
