The paperwork seeks everything. This is far more important in the Schedule of Assets and Debts than in the Petition, Response, and Property Declarations.

    List everything, you are under penalty of perjury on your disclosures. Then in your agreement, list all debts you have agreed to take responsibility for after the divorce (you are not required to divide assets or debts equally, so long as you both agree).
