Objection to subpoena for financial records


#1

I AM HEADED BACK TO COURT BECAUSE MY EX WANTS TO MODIFY CHILD SUPPORT. I SENT HIM A SUBPOENA FOR HIS FINANCIAL RECORDS AND RECEIVED AN OBJECTION TO THE SUBPOENA FOR OVERBROAD, AMBIGUOUS, VAGUE, UNREASONABLE, OPPRESSIVE, UNDUE BURDEN OR EXPENSE, ETC. THE SAME DAY I RECEIVED A SUBPOENA REQUESTING MINE. I AM FINE WITH PROVIDING THIS INFORMATION, BUT DON’T SEE HOW THEY CAN OBJECT. I FILED THE SUBPOENA ON MY OWN BECAUSE I CAN NOT AFFORD AN ATTORNEY ANYMORE. SOMEHOW MY EX CAN STILL AFFORD ONE EVEN THOUGH HE HASN’T PAID CHILD SUPPORT OR ALIMONY FOR 6 MONTHS. WHAT DO I DO SINCE IT APPEARS THEY ARE NOT GOING TO BE UPFRONT WITH THE FINANCIAL RECORDS? COURT IS NEXT WEEK. THANK YOU.

Hello Whisper,

Have you filed a motion for show cause or contempt concerning his violation of a court order on support payments?

I can imagine the financial strain you are in.

The judge can compel your ex to disclose those documents. If they have filed an objection, you can certainly object as well. At the end of the day the judge can compel disclosure of financial information.
