He is asking you for this information because your husband's ex-wife may request this information from the court.
She is allowed to look at your household income and since you are legally married, your attorney just wants to make sure that all the basis are covered.
While you are not obligated to pay child support, your household income does go into account to figure out how much your husband has to pay for child support to the ex wife.
They also want to make sure that nobody is trying to hide any money so they want to know how much money is in your bank accounts.
I don't know why they need to know how much money we have or don't have. In the past it has gone by my husband's income and the child support chart. Who will have access to our bank accounts?
They don't have access to your bank accounts but your attorney is trying to make sure that all your money is protected so if the other side wants to make an issue about anything, he doesn't want to be surprised. In my firm, we always have the clients disclose everything to us so that no surprises come up.
You don't want the ex wife saying that your husband is hiding money in your bank accounts or that he really gets paid more so your attorney wants to be prepared
All that information is confidential between you and your attorney
