New York law allows both spouses to receive complete financial disclosure as to the other spouse's income, assets and expenses before the case can proceed to trial or an amicably negotiated settlement agreement. In fact, the disclosure must be filed with the court whether the divorce is amicable or contested. You also have the right to question your spouse under oath before a court reporter about his or her finances, as well as having the right to obtain appraisals of real property, personal property, licenses, degrees and business assets.
