No. But have you tried filing for a debtor's exam with the court? If debtor doesn't show up, you can ask the court for a bench warrant. If they do show up, they must produce information regarding their assets under oath.

You may have a point here, but it sounds like it is an issue the judge may need to weigh in on through a motion you file. If you have not already, you need to seek advice from an attorney familiar with civil procedure and rules of professional conduct.
