What are interrogatories?
Interrogatories are one of the most used forms of discovery. Interrogatories are essentially questions that can be asked of either party and that the party has to answer under oath. The scope of the questions is unlimited. Some counties do limit the number of questions that can be asked, although there are ways around that. But the basic thing to know about interrogatories are they are questions you have to respond to and you have thirty days to respond after you’ve been served. If you need additional time to respond, you can ask the opposing party, the opposing attorney, or the court.
