If one is seeking additional information to determine the spouses' share of community assets, for example, and feel the need for an extended history of bank records, how much in advance of a hearing (e.g. an evidentiary hearing or a final dissolution hearing) must one file the subpoena(s) in order to get the information back in time from financial institutions (banks) assuming their required response time, and satisfy any date(s) by which the results need to be submitted to court to be considered?
This is a family law question rather than a bankruptcy question. I will change category for you.
Your question is frought with probkems. Your proper purpose should be to uncover assets esp. community ones and follow them out of the account (s). This is extremely time consuming and needs to be effectuated and analyzed before evidentiary hearings. Attempt to commence and end such discovery well before the hearing so as to have time to embrace delays and setbacks.
I agree with Mr. Burns. Well in advance; and you have to make sure that you execute the subpoena process properly. Aside from subpoenas, have you done any other kind of discovery (e.g., form interrogatories, request for production, etc.)?
