My response:

In an uncontested divorce, the presumption is that the two of you have already prepared a "Property Settlement Agreement" or "Marital Settlement Agreement" (which assumes no children) and which is made ready for the judge's review, signature, and incorporation into a final order and decree of divorce. If this is the case, then the judge has no reason to look into the actual private affairs and documents of either party.

Judges only get involved in such matters when the parties can't agree, thus making the matter a "contested matter", and is then forced to decide the issue of property division between the parties. And, the only way a judge can make that decision is to have everything that is owned by the parties "laid out on the table" for review.
