In California, couples going through divorce proceedings are required - by law - to truthfully disclose all assets and liabilities. This disclosure is done on the initial Petition for Dissolution of Marriage, Form FL-100 or the initial response, Form FL-120. These financial affidavits, once completed, are then filed with the court and are considered official court documents. Parties are also required to serve on one another a Declaration of Disclosure which is signed under penalty of perjury and should list all assets, debts, income, and expenses. Sounds straightforward, right?
