I am divorced but still going thru a financial battle with my ex. My current wive has her own business . She has offered to help out in my continuous financial proceedings but does not want her financials to be reviewed.
Can she be forced to provide any docs if i get money from her?
If it is pertinent to your income and the divorce proceeding, then it can be subpoenaed or requested in discovery. What you can do is object on the basis of privacy rights and assert other objections and either narrow the scope of the subpoena or have your lawyer meet and confer with your ex-wife's lawyer as to what documents are being produced.
Are you represented by counsel? I would really suggest that you hire a lawyer.
Ms. Johns is a lawyer although she is not your lawyer unless you have consulted with her and signed a fee or letter agreement confirming her representation of you. This post does not constitute legal advice and no attorney client reltationship results.
I cannot think of a reason they should be able to do that. In Illinois the only reason would be for college expenses the new spouses income can be considered. You did not say what type of post decree matter. If it is college expenses then maybe. Contact a local attorney with expertise in this area.
