Unfortunately, pursuant to Family code 3664(a) and 3665, once there is a support order entered by the court, a party may request these type of financial documents annually. If a party fails to provide the requested documents, then the requesting party may seek sanctions, which may include fines, attorney fees, and even contempt charges.
However, since the statute does not preclude the following, a party may motion the court (form FL300) requesting that the FL396 is only to be permitted after a certain interval (ie 2 years; or change of income, etc).
Since child support is always modifiable and is subject to modification based on a change in income, the statute allows for regular discovery of income issues so that a party may request modification if the circumstances so warrant.
