I am going through a divorce filed by ex. His attorney has asked me to submit all my education, work and financial papers.

Asked 7 months ago - Sunnyvale, CA

I am getting temporary alimony since Aug 2013. I was a stay at home mom. Now doing training to get back to work. His attorney has asked to submit all my papers including all financial ones since date of separation which includes how I am spending alimony. Ex wants to require me to start working. Is this asking for all info of mine right?
