Full Disclosure: Don't Hold Back Information in Your Divorce
Spouses are in a fiduciary relationship with one another — whether seeking divorce or not. This relationship imposes the duty to be truthful and fully disclose all information pertaining to assets and liabilities. In California divorces, full disclosure is completed through a preliminary declaration of disclosure, which includes a schedule of all known assets and liabilities. Failure to fully disclose information in this schedule can result in serious problems later in the divorce process or after the final divorce decree.
If the court later becomes aware of a spouse's (or former spouse's) intentional failure to disclose information about any assets or liabilities, the court may use that as a factor in determining the final property division order (or post-judgment modification). This includes disclosure of lottery winnings, investments, business opportunities, and all other known assets or debts.
