Spouse not truthful with financial disclosure
February 18, 2021 02:20PM
Hi all, I am new to the forum. Looking for some advise with financial disclosure.
I have been married for over 10 years and getting a divorce now. During our marriage, we both were earning roughly the same amount. My salary has been used primarily for all expenses. My partner's salary was meant to be our saving. My partner said that the money has been sent to our in-laws who are managing it and investing it overseas.

Now during the financial disclosure I have disclosed all my assets and my partner hasn't disclosed a single penny of offshore assets. What options do I have here. There is no way for me to prove that there are offshore assets, but if bank transactions over the last 10 years are checked, there will be transactions for large amounts moving offshore. This is again not in a joint account.

The truth of the matter is that you have been taken for a mug. Although this may be a case where you might be able to persuade a court to direct disclosure going back more than one year I very much doubt that you will get 10 years' worth of bank statements. You will have to prove it in whatever way you can. After all, there must be some sort of paper trail about what he/she is presumably still doing with income. Mind you, if your spouse says, 'I have been sending money overseas to support my aged parents', how are you going to prove otherwise? You did, after all, not question this for 10 years.

Thanks very much for your reply David. We had relationship problems for a number of years and any discussion on money would only harm the relationship, so I had to put off talking about this. Most of the transactions have taken place until end of 2015. I will discuss with my lawyer what best can be done.
