WHAT ARE INTERROGATORIES? – GWINNETT DIVORCE ATTORNEY

If you are served with divorce papers be sure to carefully review every document that you receive.  There should be a Summons and a Petition or Complaint for Divorce and if it is a Gwinnett County Divorce case then you should also find aMutual Restraining Order.  If minor children are involved in the divorce action then you should also find a Parenting Workshop Order and a Child Support and Parenting Plan Standing Order.  A Rule Nisi may also be attached to the divorce papers which provides information regarding a temporary hearing that has been scheduled in the case.

In many Gwinnett County divorce cases there will also be Interrogatories and a Request for Production of Documents and Notice to Produce attached to the divorce complaint that is served on the defendant.  These two documents, Interrogatories and Request for Production of Documents, are also known as discovery requests.  Interrogatories are written questions that are served on a party which requires that party to file a timely response to each question or Interrogatory.  Typical Interrogatories that you find in a divorce case are questions about income, debt, and assets, however, the Interrogatories can also touch on any number of possible issues in a divorce case such as adultery, addiction, and abuse.

If you are served with Gwinnett County divorce papers which include Interrogatories and Request for Production of Documents then you must file a complete response with the opposing party or his/her attorney within forty-five (45) days of the date you were served.  You also must sign a Verification form before a notary public which is a sworn statement that your Responses to the Interrogatories are true and correct.

You must be careful to be accurate and honest in your Responses since you are signing a Verification form stating they are true and correct, and your Responses will likely be the subject of some questions from your spouse's attorney at a hearing or trial.
