List of documents that can be requested?

Is there is a list of documents somewhere that an attorney can request for a child support hearing and a list of documents that are irrelevant?

I believe the attorney for my ex husband (who is the defendant if that matters) is asking for a multitude of documents that have no bearing on the situation.

There is no set list of financial documents to be exchanged for child support purposes. Anything relevant to income (paycheck stubs, tax returns, W-2s, checking account statements, etc.), health insurance for the minor children, and extraordinary expenses are reasonable to request.
