- District 23
Existing law subjects each party to a marriage to general rules governing fiduciary relationships which control the actions of persons occupying confidential relations with each other. Existing law governs the proceedings for dissolution of marriage, for nullity of marriage, or for legal separation of the parties. Existing law requires each party, from the date of separation to the date of a valid, enforceable, and binding resolution of all issues relating to child or spousal support and professional fees, to be subject to specified standards of a confidential and fiduciary relationship as to all issues relating to the support and fees, including immediate, full, and accurate disclosure of all material facts and information regarding the income or expenses of the party. This bill instead would provide that from the date of separation to the date of entry of a judgment for child or spousal support, each party is subject to those standards as to all issues relating to the support, including immediate, full, and accurate disclosure of all material facts and information regarding the income or expenses of the party. The bill would suspend the duty to meet those standards upon entry of a judgment for permanent support, but reinstate those duties upon the filing and service of a motion relating to child or spousal support until that motion is resolved.
