I'm about to prepare my motion to produce requesting my ex provide a W-2 for 2011 & her checking account statements for previous year. This is in regards XXXXX XXXXX petition for contributions for attorney fees. The court ordered we both produce Income & expense affidavits - but I feel it would be helpful to get a little more insight into her financial situation. Can I simply modify a regular motion form by writing "to produce" in heading, or is there a special form for this?
State/Country relating to question: Illinois
Normally, you would send her a Request for Production. It is not something that is done by motion. It is part of the "Discovery" process.
Divorce, child custody, support, mediation, alimony
You can also send her Interrogatories asking specific questions. Also, you should be able to see all of her bank statements for the last two years.
Thank you for the Accept!
