The family law facilitator in Alameda County said I need to file FL-150 and FL-160 with the court.
I am not asking the court to make an order regarding division of property. We have an MSA but proceeding as a default.
I came home and looked at the CA Courts website which clearly states: "You do NOT file the preliminary Declaration of Disclosure, or the final one if you need one, with the court. Instead, each of you has to serve a copy of all the completed forms on the other. You keep the original of your disclosure forms."
I'm confused, the CA Court website is very clear in that disclosure documents don't need to be filed (I did file FL-141 and FL-144 and served disclosure documents). I don't want to make my financial disclosures public by filing. Was the family law facilitator wrong?
