Utah Divorce Subpoena: Simple Bank Records

You end up subpoenaing bank records pretty often in Utah divorce and child custody cases.

For example, I had a case in which a deadbeat dad said he couldn’t pay child support and daycare for about a year. We filed a motion for contempt and subpoenaed his bank records. Low and behold, his bank records showed (among other things) he ate out almost every day and would regularly buy stuff from 7-Eleven two, three, five times per day. (Who goes to 7-Eleven five times in one day?)

Needless to say, those bank records were invaluable, and I used them beat up that poor schmuck on the stand.

Most often, we subpoena bank records to find out someone actual (not stated) income, and look for hidden assets.

The follow is our simple bank records request. We have a longer, more in-depth request, which will be the subject of another blog post.
