How do I exempt a non-liable spouses information from an 'Information Subpoena'?
I specifically need a location to find a document I can create and file with the court system.
Credit card default, S&C, default judgment, attempted wage garnishment but I am unemployed.
Credit was obtained before marriage, defaulted while married, never living in a community property state (NY).
Attorney for creditor now requests bank account information, car value and creditor information, etc. from me (debtor).
Creditor's attorney also requests spousal information such as SSN, place of employment, mortgage holder,etc.
Since there are no spousal obligations under said debt, how do I object certain questions under the 'Information Subpoena' pertaining to spouse, including providing joint tax returns?
As far as providing the tax returns (which are joint) with 'Response to Subpoena,' is it ill advised to black-out spousal information on the return? Said returns would obviously contain information regarding my spouse which is not pertinent.
