Can we attach exhibits to admissions and interrogatories?
Hello and thank you for the opportunity to assist you. There might be a slight delay between your follow ups and my replies as I am typing out my answer, or taking a quick break. Please remember that this is general information only, not legal advice, and no attorney-client relationship is formed.Are you requesting the discovery, or are answering it?
Thank you.They would not be called "exhibits" per se, but "attachments." It is okay to attach whatever is requested. For example:Interrogatory 3:"Provide list of expert witnesses."Answer:Please see Attachment #4 for said list.You are expected to use common sense when to use attachment, and when to answer on the Answer document, of course. If you are also using the same attachment as exhibits, you may want to include something akin to this with your Answer: "Attachment #4 corresponds to Defendant's Exhibit 3."Of course, you do not have to.I hope this finds you well. Please remember that I do not get credit for my time with you unless the answer is concluded by you; I work very hard to formulate an informative answer for you – please reciprocate my good faith. If you still need information, hit reply so we can chat until you are satisfied. You may always come back to it to ask follow ups on this topic free of charge.
Can I attach then an affidavit from a witness whom can support and answer I've given?
Hello,Hmm - can you tell me what the interrogatory is and why you feel it is prudent that you do?
We are in a termination of parental rights case. I am being accused in numerous ways of having tried to terminate my x-s rights, or otherwise keep him at a distance. He wrote an affidavit and actually answered all 6-8 questions directly, denying them but stating it short and sweet.
So it is you who is asking the interrogatory and him who is responding by affidavit?Sorry, please, can you be more specific? Devil is in the details ("and on the bench," as my professor used to say).
I'm sorry. I am being asked the interrogatories, I have responded. In addition though when I turn them in I would like to attach an affidavit from my X in which he also responded, because it made his answers more specific.
No need to apologize!So your ex is the one that is suing you, correct, and is the one requesting the interrogatory; and you wish to attach his prior text in your answer to him?
I'm really making this confusing. We are trying to take away my husbands x-wife rights because of sexual abuse to the children. The counter argument to this is that I took away my X's visitation and or rights because I am so controlling. I didn't. My X and I are good friends, he hangs out with our kids, my husband, etc. In answering the interrogatories specific to this accusation, I would like to support it in my X's own words. As well, we are already in trial. We went pro-se 3 weeks ago because of actions of our attorney we weren't aware of. We had answered all of our interrogatories a year ago but our attorney didn't answer them because the opposing party didn't answer her's ("BArred by judicia?). They judge has ordered we answer now. The affidavits would be nice to attach now that we can slip in a little more mid-trial... Also if you can answer one more, and I'm sorry - yesterday in trial the attorney stood and read my FB timeline posts...I'm a little verbal. The judge didn't really bat an eye, but do you have any thoughts on whether this could hurt me? XXXXXXXXXXXXXX if you don't have time for this one don't worry about it, specifically however it's the previous quotes in the cover photo's (right now my cartoon of children).41032.8514481134
Okay.You can add anything you want to to the answer. It may be too much, but as long as you actually provide a clear answer to the interrogatory, you may also attach whatever it is you feel is helpful. However, you need to answer, in your own words. Simply attaching a letter with someone else's verbiage that helps to clarify the answer is not enough - you also have to answer the interrogatory.Also if you can answer one more, and I'm sorry - yesterday in trial the attorney stood and read my FB timeline posts...I'm a little verbal. The judge didn't really bat an eye, but do you have any thoughts on whether this could hurt me? ... if you don't have time for this one don't worry about it, specifically however it's the previous quotes in the cover photo's (right now my cartoon of children).Anything in your Facebook may be twisted to mean something else. Even if it is just a photo of Lady Liberty with a gun, an attorney can make use of that.I'd find out who leaked your FB and unfriend them, or make your FB completely private, or both.I hope this finds you well.
