A: Speak to a lawyer. Because you refer to the other party as your ex-husband, and if the divorce is final, they likely don’t have to give you a copy of any paperwork. If the divorce is still pending, you are entitled to certain documents to be turned over to you if you request them. But you need to talk to an attorney to better explain what paperwork you’re referring too here.
