How do I find any hidden assets?

How can I find out my soon to be ex-husband's hidden asset if he is dishonest? Do I have to use investigator? Also I heard I can ask to return the expenses including dinners and gifts he spent for his girlfriend from our community assets during the marriage. How can I calculate the expense? Should I obtain his credit card statements?
