Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking.

You would write your interrogatories with one per number in a numbered list. They would be submitted to each defendant on a pleading called Plaintiff's Request for Interrogatories. You can send a different set of interrogatories to each defendant, they do not have to be the same thing to each defendant.

Here is a sample for format of interrogatories, even though it may not be the same type of case you can insert your own questions.



I truly aim to please you as a customer, but please keep in mind that I do not know what you already know or don't know, or with what you need help, unless you tell me. Please consider that I am answering the question or question that is posed in your posting based upon my reading of your post and sometimes misunderstandings can occur. If I did not answer the question you thought you were asking, please respond with the specific question you wanted answered.

Kindly remember the ONLY WAY experts receive any credit at all for spending time with customers is if you click on OK, GOOD or EXCELLENT SERVICE even though you have made a deposit or are a subscription customer. YOU MUST COMPLETE THE RATING FOR THE EXPERT TO RECEIVE ANY CREDIT, if not the site keeps your money on deposit.

Also remember, sometimes the law does not support what we want it to support, but that is not the fault of the person answering the question, so please be courteous.

paul in the format of interrogatories i cannot download that. can you post it to me or longhand. and what is the time the defendants have to answer to these ques. and can i resend 2 such forms if new ques. arise?

Expert:  Law Educator, Esq. replied 1 year ago.
It is a pdf file that is the only way we can post items I am afraid. they have 30 days to answer. If I cut and paste it here it will not all fit and also there would be no formatting, so it would look like something not really usable for you. You can download adobe for free at http://www.adobe.com and then you can open the pdf file and copy and paste it to your word processor. See below what happens on cut and paste to here:
