Is there any “law” or anything that requires the exchange of income tax returns between parties? At trial, the judge set my “ex’s” income on “hearsay” and did not use verified tax returns that were submitted during trial. The Court simply used the “testimony” that his income would fall $60,000 per year. Do I have the right to see his tax returns? Seems like I read something somewhere where the parties have the right to see the returns…Thanks.
