I was legally separated in California in 2007 with a settlement agreement dividing assets and covering spousal support and all financial matters. We have no minor children. Based upon equal income during marriage, spousal support is zero. However, the section on support says the court retains jurisdiction over spousal support until January 2018. Post 2007 (i.e. after the separation), I generated significant income (i.e. far more than during marriage) while my spouse is now living off unemployment benefits. I do not want my spouse to know about my present income. Is it possible now and/or post 2018 to complete a divorce proceeding without new financial disclosures? My spouse and I get along well now without any contentious issues and this knowledge would raise new problems.
