If your settlement agreement does not require you to do so or the court did not order you to do so, then you do not owe him that information. However, if he does go after you for child support, you will have to submit that information with your Answer and during discovery.

In Colorado if you want a court to order child support, both parties must exchange all relevant financial information. If there is no court order or court case pending, there is nothing binding or legal and payment of child support and any exchange of information is totally voluntary.

Child support is an ongoing issue until the children turn 18 or are otherwise emancipated. As a result, your ex-husband has the right to establish child support or modify child support. If he files an action to establish child support, he would then have the right to obtain your current employment information and any recent employment information if you have changed jobs recently. Prior to filing a court action, you have no legal duty or obligation to disclose your employment information. If you ex-husband files for child support, I would recommend that you employ an attorney to assist you with this process.

Yes, if the matter goes to court. In Washington, if you go to court over child support, both sides are going to have to disclosed to the other his or her last two years of tax returns with W-2 forms, and last six months of pay stubs. Each party will also have to complete a financial declaration. In addition, some counties in Washington require the disclosure of things like the last six months of credit card statements, the last six months of bank statements, and the last six months of check registers.

You need to protect your legal rights and representing yourself is not the way to do so. Representing yourself is a recipe for problems, if not now, in the future. Retaining a lawyer need not be as difficult as you think.
