There may be some special situations that require you to supply additional information. These include:

If you are separated or divorced, you should bring a copy of your divorce decree and separation agreement. Also bring documentation on alimony or child support payments you are required to make or you receive as income. Proof of this income can be the clerk of court's history of payments or canceled checks for the past year.

If you receive pension, disability, Social Security, or other public assistance as part of your income, you'll need to bring a copy of your most recent benefits statement.

If you have a bankruptcy, foreclosure, or any judgments against you over the past seven years, you'll need to bring relevant information about the proceedings. Such information includes a copy of the bankruptcy discharge and schedule of both debts and assets. An attorney's letter that discusses the outcome of the proceedings should be included if there are judgments against you.
