Yes you may be asked.
But ask the purpose!!
But put it in writing....and ask boldly...why you need it!!...for what purpose it is intended to be used?? (this is veryvery very very important!!) Don;t miss to bring ti in writing...take a few adjournments for it .............change the direction of force...
But bare denial would cause to draw adverse inference.
Are they drawing any conclusions to extrapolate? (shoot interrogatory and cross questions in writing and invoke subject matter expert opinion.)
Judges asks 'what's the difficulty you have to show your past IT returns if you are salaried?'
This is a trap!!
Your wife may extrapolate from your academic records!!!! also that you should have been in MIT/Harvard by now....
Do Ask........................... For what purpose it is to be saught.??
It's amply clear from many people's plight that, Judges find avenues to come to discretionary areas and pretexts. Don't allow them any such free space.
Fight it strongly that extrapolation is extraneous and erroneous in todays era of cyclic recessions, your age, compitition, new skills in market etc.
It's not the opinion of the Judge to conclude your capability.
Boldly just ask the judge to 'give me a job ...then I will pay from it'.
maint on erroneous conclusion would prejudice you to comply to task beyond your means which would be injustice.
(This is an area where you and your lawyer need to be very strong while arguments and submit written arguments and ensure that you scream a lot before submitting such docs!!! and Relevancy of evidence....say again and again that it irrelevant and shoot cross objection about relevancy to 'Notice to produce docuemnt' filed by wife. )
Irrelevent facts can't be used to baseline or to form any opinion (use citations)
Donation seekers would always make you a billionaire on papers scandalously and squeeze out money from you by 'order/decre' which becomes binding laterwards and unless you pay arrears you can't even appeal/revise/review it.
Your plea should be like ...........It may create prejudice against you although it is not your current capacity to earn (differenciate between capability and capacity) Tell them that you wish... you had been appointed as a CEO, but nobody wants to use your real potential!! may be there is more supply than demand!!and you may deny it in writing and have a debate on it.
BEWARE of the upcomming storm!!!
