Yes, you will have to inform the court of all the assets you own. Most counties require that you fill out an Equitable Distribution Affidavit which lists all property owned by each party, including property that a spouse contends is his or her separate property.
A spouse’s separate property is a factor that a judge can consider in making an alimony award.
