The Court will not investigate your assets. However, you spouse (and attorney) will have an opportunity to discover what assets you own/possess. If you fail to reveal your net worth and it is discovered you concealed that information, that obviously can adversely affect your credibility and the merits of your case.

The divorce process requires complete disclosure of income, assets and liabilities; plus the other party, usually through counsel, has an opportunity to do their own investigation. Usually, failure to disclose an asset is easily discoverable and would come back to haunt the party being less than forthright.

The court doesn't complete any type of investigation in a divorce case. It is up to the parties to complete their own investigations and then submit evidence to the court that they discover during the course of their own investigation.

No a court does not investigate anything.. the opposing party to the divorce does and presents proof of the assets to the court.
