What Are Common Types of Legal Discovery in a Placer County Divorce?

Parties to a Placer County divorce have an affirmative obligation to surrender copies of all financial documents and asset and debt information to their spouse after initiation of the divorce case.  The Placer County courts require this in order to avoid parties hiding income, expenses, assets and debts from each other and therefore causing an inequitable result.

Unfortunately, there are parties to Placer County divorces who are bound and determined to disobey the law and hide important documents relating to income, expenses, assets and debts.  In cases like these, the victimized party is not without a legal option.  To discover information, the suspicious party can serve form interrogatories which are legal questions under oath.  These are pre-prepared standard questions and requests for documents that apply in typical Placer county divorce cases.  The asking party can also prepare special interrogatories which are legal questions under oath specifically written by the asking party.

The asking party can also send subpoenas to almost any third party to produce documents and/or oral testimony.  The asking party can require the other spouse to appear for a deposition in which legal questions are asked of the other spouse under oath, on the spot, in the presence of a court reporter.  The asking party can send demands to produce documents to the answering party.  Finally, the asking party can send a demand to admit that certain statements are true (as a way to narrow the disputed issues).

Legal discovery is a powerful option to uncover information your spouse may be hiding in a Placer County divorce, but there are complicated rules to follow.  This is why it is very important to have an attorney assisting you.  Our Placer County divorce attorneys are experienced in handling legal discovery.  We offer a free half hour consultation so call us today.
