34 - Financial Disclosure in Family Law Cases

In Ontario Family Law, financial disclosure is both the starting point and the cornerstone of the separation or divorce process whenever there is money involved.  It can often also be a bone of contention between spouses in itself, with one spouse feeling that he or she is being abused by massive disclosure requests and the other spouse being angry and suspicious that his or her ex is avoding disclosure to hide money.

In this edition of the Ontario Family Law Podcast, Certified Specialist in Family Law, John Schuman, explains what disclosure is necessary in family law cases, when spouses have to provide it and what happens when one spouse is not satisfied with the disclosure provided. He goes over the disclosure process in Family Court, Mediation, Arbitration and Collaborative Practice and goes over the privacy concerns that disclosure can create in Family Court.  This podcast also describes the serious consequences that can arise for a party who refuses to provide financial disclosure.
