Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
Hello and thank you for your question.Under the rules you can serve both - 30 Requests for Admissions AND 30 Interrogatories. The response to the Requests for Admissions and Interrogatories are due within 30 days after service. Therefore, your ex would have 30 days to answer. The only time a party would have 45 days to respond or answer is if the Requests or Interrogatories were served with the Complaint, meaning if your ex served a Request for Admissions or Interrogatories on you at the same time as the Complaint against you, you would have 45 days to respond. At all other times a party has 30 days to respond from the time of service of each. However, a party might also request an extension to answer by agreement with the other party, or seek an extension of time to answer from the court.Please feel free to ask any follow-up questions.
