You have to be served with any court papers and he has to provide proof of service to the court. If you have not been served the court will not grant the divorce.
If he has lied about the financial position and you have evidence and you signed settlement orders you can ask to have them set aside under section 79A of the family law act.
The divorce is separate to the property. If you want to know if he has filed you can call the family court and they will tell you if he has filed and the date it has been listed.
Here is the contact page of the family court.
