Utah Divorce Subpoena: Employment Records

Today’s subpoena: employment records.

We subpoena employment records for a couple reasons:

  1. It gives us a good idea of someone’s stability (or lack of) in jobs. If someone goes between jobs regularly, there’s almost always a reason for that, and getting records reveals why.
  2. It provides records regarding how much someone actually makes. Sometimes, you can fudge salary numbers, but your employer can’t.

This request is a little involved, and there’s a reason for that. You could simply send a subpoena asking for “all documents, records, and information regarding (person’s name).” That could work, but what we find is asking for “everything” and then telling the company exactly what “everything” means usually garners more information. Don’t ask me why this is, but it is, and that’s why this request is long.
