Dear customer, obtaining details about your husband's super fund requires his consent, unless there are pending proceedings in the Family Court for financial separation, which then disclosure is mandatory, or order by the Court.

If I lodge the financial papers in court can they make him disclose where it is? What if he doesn't appear?
Expert:  John Melis replied 3 months ago.

Dear customer, you will need to apply to the court for an order for disclosure, and the court will enforce that order on the same.
