26 Jul I am suspicious about my ex-partner’s disclosure – what should I do?
The duty of disclosure is your obligation to provide, to the other party and to the Court, information about your financial position and copies of all documents relevant to the issues in the case.
It may be the case that your ex-partner has disclosed documents relevant to your matter, but you remain skeptical that frank disclosure has not been provided.
In these circumstances, one option available to you is to subpoena the party or a third-party bank, financial advisors, or any other appropriate corporation that may be in control of financial documents relating to the property settlement, to provide the records to the Court.
If it is found that your ex-partner has failed to disclose, the Court may order costs against them, fine them, or even imprison them on being found guilty of contempt of Court.
If this relates to you, you should seek legal advice to see what options you have available in order to achieve a fair, just and equitable property settlement outcome.
