Independentgal,

Yes, I was stressed during the questioning, but for me personally it was more of a migraine headache type stress. I didn't cry, but I did find it uncomfortable to have my estranged husband sitting across from me. Don't forget that your lawyer will be there with you so he/she will be advising you on questions you don't have to answer. Think about what are the hot issues in your divorce and that is most likely where the questioning will focus on. Always stick with the truth so they won't be able to "trick" you. If you start to feel your getting stress, certainly ask to take a break. Most of the questioning revolved around what I had stated in previous affidavits and financial statements.

I did not have to bring any documents with me, but your lawyer will be able to give you a better idea of what is needed in your case when you meet with him beforehand. My questioning lasted the whole day. When my lawyers questioned my ex it was only for 2 hours. I lot will depend on the lawyers style.
