Respondent lost his job of 15 yrs due to his own doing, now has no job since Oct 2012. Wants to reduce child support, since he is unable to find a job making same income as when order for child support was enforced. Do I have to provide all documents requested? The summonds was for production of information and not appearance in court as of yet. I support children with All coverage for medical & child care and they reside with me over 60% of the time. He has them every other weekend and dedicated thursday night.
It would appear that you should comply with this request for information. He will also need to provide the same information to you.
You will have to comply with any request for production or order from the child support court requiring you to file certain financial information. One thing you may want to make sure to request from the Respondent would be copies of job applications that he has filed since he lost employment or perhaps another discovery mechanism specifically asking him how many jobs he's applied for and where.
