Every divorce is a lawsuit, and California law requires both parties in a divorce to fully disclose all assets, debts and transactions to the other. Failure to fulfill these spousal fiduciary duties can have serious consequences for anyone who does not provide full disclosure, including costly financial penalties and court orders to pay the wronged spouse's attorney fees.
