|While your spouse may be genuine in his statement that you will be taken care of, you should not rely upon that sentiment without having an understanding of your spouse’s income and assets. If your spouse refuses to provide that information to you there is most likely a reason why. In such a scenario it is
strongly recommended that you consult with an attorney to determine your rights. During a divorce you are entitled to receive any information that is relevant to the issues in your divorce, which would include your spouse’s income and assets. Even if your spouse provides you with that information it still may not provide a complete and accurate picture. In certain circumstances an attorney can review the information provided by your spouse and determine your rights. In more complex circumstances it may be necessary to engage a financial professional, such as a forensic accountant, to review the information and provide an analysis. The bottom line is that you should never enter into an agreement without first understanding the complete and accurate financial circumstances that exist.
