The discovery process is one of the most important parts of many Washington family law cases. The discovery process is the process by which both parties in a family law case obtain information and/or documentation from the other party or third parties. During the process many different types of information may be obtained using several different discovery methods. A family law attorney can help a client develop a discovery plan that properly fits the needs of their case.
One method of discovery is interrogatories directed to the other party. “Interrogatories” is the word we use for questions asked of one party of a dispute. The questions may be simple and the answers may provide only specific facts, or they can be more complicated and include multiple parts. In some counties there are limits on how many Interrogatories may be sent to the other party.
