If my husband emailed me asking me for my stateID number because his lawyer needs it for a divorce, is it safe for me to give out this information?

I am a NY lawyer.  I would not give out any information to an adversary (your soon to be ex-husband).  Also, I would suggest that consult a lawyer becuase if your ex-husb. has a lawyer, anything he says to you is coming from his lawyer or with his lawyer's guidance.
