The filing of an action for a divorce, legal separation, or motion to modify requires the submission of a Statement of Property. A Statement of Property mandates the disclosure of all the assets and debts that you are aware of – even those that you owned prior to the marriage. The extensive array of discovery tools available to attorneys means that it is very likely that any attempt to conceal assets will fail. Further, the discovery of concealed assets will cause you to immediately lose credibility with the Court (and your attorney). Even in the rare cases where no investigation occurs into the existence or value of your assets, your former spouse may file an action requesting the Court to divide assets discovered after your divorce is final. Reputable attorneys will not assist you in making false statements to the Court.
