Dear All - in a custody case if the father refuses to divulge his payslips/income (or income tax returns) then is it a problem? Can he show his immovable properties and retirements benefits (EPF & PPF) to prove he has sufficient means and earning much more than the opposite party. Can the court force him to divulge his payslips or IT returns which is very personal thing. In worst case can't he submit a affidavit saying his income is so and so amount. Does it (affidavit) gets verified by court?
Also, If there is any judgement where the father did not submit salary documents and court considered some other parameters(EPF/PPF/Property) deduced his income was sufficient then please share.
