    My partner whom I live with is about to commence a financial and property settlement with his wife. Is my financial situation taken into account? i.e. Will I be forced to disclose my income or assets?

    The only assets taken into consideration in a property settlement are those in which the parties had a shared interest. For example, if he owned a house with his former spouse, that would be a joint interest because they both benefitted from it during their marriage. Assets that are yours should not be included because she does not have a joint interest in them, but bear in mind that her interest in an asset won't disappear if any portion of a shared asset is transferred into your name.

    Hope this helps.
