What is financial disclosure?
In a divorce proceeding, far too often issues arise over family finances, both parties are required at this stage to provide full disclosure of their financial situations.
it is after disclosure has been made, you can move on to negotiate a financial settlement.
At Adel Jibs, we always inform our clients of the importance of providing us with their full financial situation. The more efficient the disclosure stage of divorce is dealt with, the more likely a chance to agree on a settlement.
Why is a disclosure important
The court in a financial settlement aims to ensure that assets are fairly distributed between the parties and thus ensuring their funds for the future.
In order for the court to make a financial settlement order, the court would need to ascertain the full extent of the couple’s assets, inclusive of crypto coins. If assets are hidden, then it may be open to the other party to return to the court in the future and ask for an amendment of order.
What happens if a spouse refuses to give disclosure
At Adel Jibs & Co Solicitors, we come across client partners who are adamant and do not want to voluntary disclose financial situation and if the disclosure is not made, then an application is made to the court to order disclosure and for such disclosure to be made within a time frame.
