How can I legally find out my ex wife's current income if she wont' tell me? I'm paying child support but have suspicion that she has nearly doubled her income, so I would like to see what my new support obligations would be given her increased income.

Thanks for your patience as I located the relevant information-

please see page 14 here: http://www.masslegalhelp.org/children-and-families/publications/booklets/discovery.pdf

The relevant procedure is a "request for Production of documents" (ie tax return, paystubs).

Some people will disclose this upon informal written request; if that does not work the above step would be the other option.

I hope I've answered your question to your satisfaction. Please let me know if you require further clarification.

And, please provide a positive feedback rating -- otherwise, I receive nothing for my efforts on your behalf.

Thank you; it's been a pleasure to assist you.
