Yes and if you don't have the documents in your possession or control all you need to do is so.
Many times, even if you don't have the documents in your possession, the court will order that you obtain the documents. If the documents are not privileged then most likely you will be ordered to turn them over. You could be sanctioned if you fail to provide them and that could mean money sanctions.
