I will be filing an order to appear for a debtor examination and would like the debtor to provide documentation for any questions I plan to ask at the debtor's exam. As such, I plan to subpoena about 20 financial records of the debtor. The subpoena asks for records the debtor has and asks the debtor to makes various lists (rental properties, inheritances, etc.) Having never done this before, I'm worried that a judge may think that the request for such a large volume of information is too probing and deny my request.
1. Generally speaking, how much latitude are creditors given when subpoenaing this type of information?
2. Are there any areas to stay away from?
3. If a judge wants to exclude a certain item subpoenaed, can he exclude that one item, or must he reject the whole subpoena?
