How can my divorce attorney subpoena the EB-5 investment firm my husband used for his petition?

Can my divorce attorney subpoena an EB-5 investment firm and request all EB-5 immigration related documents of my spouse, who is the principal petitioner? I have no clue about the investment at all and we are in the middle of a divorce.

    This question should be put to your divorce attorney.

    You need to discuss with our divorce attorney but typically in a divorce, both parties must disclose all assets, especially if you live in a community property state.

    He can likely subpoena the documents but they may have signed confidentiality agreements.

    That may depend on the jurisdiction, but as EB-5 regional centers and new commercial enterprises are private companies, they would likely have to comply with applicable laws regarding subpoenas of their records.
