The preliminary declaration of disclosure shall include all tax returns filed by the declarant within the two years prior to the date that the party served the declaration.

(b) The preliminary declaration of disclosure shall not be filed with the court, except on court order. However, the parties shall file proof of service of the preliminary declaration of disclosure with the court.

(c) The preliminary declaration of disclosure shall set forth with sufficient particularity, that a person of reasonable and ordinary intelligence can ascertain, all of the following:

(1) The identity of all assets in which the declarant has or may have an interest and all liabilities for which the declarant is or may be liable, regardless of the characterization of the asset or liability as community, quasi-community, or separate.

(2) The declarant’s percentage of ownership in each asset and percentage of obligation for each liability when property is not solely owned by one or both of the parties. The preliminary declaration may also set forth the declarant’s characterization of each asset or liability.

(d) A declarant may amend the preliminary declaration of disclosure without leave of the court. Proof of service of an amendment shall be filed with the court.

(e) Along with the preliminary declaration of disclosure, each party shall provide the other party with a completed income and expense declaration unless an income and expense declaration has already been provided and is current and valid.

(f) The petitioner shall serve the other party with the preliminary declaration of disclosure either concurrently with the petition for dissolution or legal separation, or within 60 days of filing the petition. When a petitioner serves the summons and petition by publication or posting pursuant to court order and the respondent files a response prior to a default judgment being entered, the petitioner shall serve the other party with the preliminary declaration of disclosure within 30 days of the response being filed. The respondent shall serve the other party with the preliminary declaration of disclosure either concurrently with the response to the petition, or within 60 days of filing the response. The time periods specified in this subdivision may be extended by written agreement of the parties or by court order.

2107.
(a) If one party fails to serve on the other party a preliminary declaration of disclosure under Section 2104, unless that party is not required to serve a preliminary declaration of disclosure pursuant to Section 2110, or a final declaration of disclosure under Section 2105, or fails to provide the information required in the respective declarations with sufficient particularity, and if the other party has served the respective declaration of disclosure on the noncomplying party, the complying party may, within a reasonable time, request preparation of the appropriate declaration of disclosure or further particularity.

(b) If the noncomplying party fails to comply with a request under subdivision (a), the complying party may do one or more of the following:

(1) File a motion to compel a further response.

(2) File a motion for an order preventing the noncomplying party from presenting evidence on issues that should have been covered in the declaration of disclosure.

(3) File a motion showing good cause for the court to grant the complying party’s voluntary waiver of receipt of the noncomplying party’s preliminary declaration of disclosure pursuant to Section 2104 or final declaration of disclosure pursuant to Section 2105. The voluntary waiver does not affect the rights enumerated in subdivision (d).

(c) If a party fails to comply with any provision of this chapter, the court shall, in addition to any other remedy provided by law, impose money sanctions against the noncomplying party. Sanctions shall be in an amount sufficient to deter repetition of the conduct or comparable conduct, and shall include reasonable attorney’s fees, costs incurred, or both, unless the court finds that the noncomplying party acted with substantial justification or that other circumstances make the imposition of the sanction unjust.

(d) Except as otherwise provided in this subdivision, if a court enters a judgment when the parties have failed to comply with all disclosure requirements of this chapter, the court shall set aside the judgment. The failure to comply with the disclosure requirements does not constitute harmless error. If the court granted the complying party’s voluntary waiver of receipt of the noncomplying party’s preliminary declaration of disclosure pursuant to paragraph (3) of subdivision (b), the court shall set aside the judgment only at the request of the complying party, unless the motion to set aside the judgment is based on one of the following:

(1) Actual fraud if the defrauded party was kept in ignorance or in some other manner was fraudulently prevented from fully participating in the proceeding.

(2) Perjury, as defined in Section 118 of the Penal Code, in the preliminary or final declaration of disclosure, in the waiver of the final declaration of disclosure, or in the current income and expense statement.

(e) Upon the motion to set aside judgment, the court may order the parties to provide the preliminary and final declarations of disclosure that were exchanged between them. Absent a court order to the contrary, the disclosure declarations shall not be filed with the court and shall be returned to the parties.

Under California Family Code section 2104, each party must serve the other party a preliminary declaration of disclosure, completed under the penalty of perjury. If a party commits perjury on his or her preliminary declaration of disclosure, the court will be able to set aside the judgment. Also, that party may face civil and criminal penalties.

Each party’s declaration of disclosure is not to be filed with the court. However, each party must file a form with the court stating, under the penalty of perjury, that he or she did serve the other party with their preliminary declaration of disclosure.  The completion and exchange of each party’s preliminary declaration of disclosure must be done before the court can finalize a divorce. Therefore, if at least one party has not completed and exchanged his or her preliminary declaration of disclosure, the court will not enter a divorce judgment.

By requiring each party to complete and exchange a preliminary declaration of disclosure under the penalty of perjury, the legislature wanted to make sure each party went into either a settlement agreement or court hearing with their eyes wide open and aware of what the other party’s income and expenses are, as well as what assets and debts are community property and separate property.

If you plan on filing or have filed for divorce, it is important that you hire an experienced and knowledgeable divorce lawyer who can help you with the complex and detailed family law issues, including declarations of disclosure.

Declaration of Disclosure: Discovery in Family Law for New Attorneys

by Alfonso Martinez, Family Law Facilitator, Ventura County Superior Court

Family law provides challenging and rewarding careers for any young attorney. Divorce and Legal Separation proceedings provide excellent ways to gain experience in family law. Once the parties have successfully divided their debts and assets, they are one step closer to final judgment. The preliminary and final disclosures establish the path toward this end.

The initial discovery in divorce or separation matters begin with the preliminary declaration of disclosures. The Family Code establishes requirements for preliminary and final disclosures. Special exceptions apply to summary dissolution and default judgments. This article provides an overview of the declaration of disclosure process to assist you with establishing an equitable division of your client’s assets and debts.

Family Code sections 2104 and 2105 govern the preliminary and final declaration of disclosure process and requirements. After filing and serving the Petition for either a Dissolution of Marriage or for Legal Separation, the Petitioner initiates the disclosure procedure by preparing, serving, and filing a Preliminary Declaration of Disclosure. This must be done within 60 days of filing the Petition. Similarly, the Respondent must serve his/her Preliminary Declaration of Disclosure within 60 days of filing the Response. These statutory deadlines may be extended by agreement or court order. (F.C. §2104(f)). Final Declarations of Disclosure must be served by each party before or at the time they resolve property or support issues, or no later than 45 days before the case is set for trial, whichever is later. If both parties have made a general appearance in the Dissolution proceeding, neither party can waive his/her obligation to prepare, serve, and file Preliminary Declarations of Disclosure. Conversely, parties can agree to waive their obligation to prepare, serve, and file Final Declarations of Disclosures.

If one party has complied with the disclosure procedure, but the other has not, the complying party may file: 1) motion to compel, 2) motion for an order preventing the noncomplying party from presenting evidence on issues, 3) motion to grant the complying party’s voluntary waiver of receipt of the noncomplying party’s preliminary and final disclosures, or 4) request monetary sanctions. (F.C. §2107). Finally, a court may set aside a judgment if the disclosure requirements were not met. (F.C. §2107(d)).

Disclosure requirements differ in summary dissolution proceedings and in cases involving default judgments. In summary dissolution proceedings the exchange of Preliminary Declarations of Disclosure are done by completing the worksheets provide in the Summary Dissolution Information packet (Judicial Council form FL-810). Final Declarations of Disclosure are not required in summary proceedings.  (See F.C. § 2109).  In true defaults (where there are no marital settlement agreements) only the Petitioner is required to serve Preliminary Declarations of Disclosure and may waive his/her obligations in connection with Final Declarations of Disclosure. In default judgments with agreements, the Family Code requires both parties to exchange Preliminary Declarations of Disclosures. The parties may elect to waive the Final Declaration of Disclosure requirement.
