In what court is this pending? What are the details?
So to be clear, you are not objecting to jurisdiction - you are just looking to propound discovery on him to get the financial information - correct?
If he filed the motion to reduce the monthly payment in the same court where the divorce was finalized, you will probably have a very difficult time challenging jurisdiction, since the court does have jurisdiction over the matter. As for the request for discovery, depending upon what court you are in, you may be able to file and serve your ex-husband with a Subpoena Duces Tecum to get him to turn over the documents you are seeking. You may want to request tax returns and bank statements. The clerks at the court can be very helpful. Call the court to see if they have a Subpoena Duces Tecum form available and ask if you can file it in your case. I hope this helps.
Your satisfaction is my goal, and I'm happy to answer any follow-up questions you may have.
