Hi, I'm Heather, an attorney with 15 years experience, and I'd be happy to assist you for informational purposes.
In answering interrogatories, you will type up a page that starts out with the same header as the other filed documents in your court case. It will have the parties names (Plaintiff v. Defendant), your name will be at the very top as the person preparing the document, and it will have the case number, and the title of the document (Plaintiff's/Defendant's Answers to First Set of Interrogatories).
Then you will type:
INTERROGATORY NO. 1: _________(type in the question)
ANSWER TO INTERROGATORY NO. 1: _______(type in your answer).
If you have any objections to any of the interrogatories, you can write up your objection just before you start to answer the question. For example:
I object to interrogatory no. 1, because the question is vague and ambiguous. Nothwithstanding this objection, I answer as follows:___
If the question asks for any information that is privileged, you won't provide that.
Also, keep your responses short and to the point, and don't provide more information than what is asked for in the interrogatory, unless you are certain it will not hurt your case. The other side will be using the answers to interrogatories to cross examine you in court if your answers are very favorable to them. Generally, if the information sought in a question is contained in a document, it is normally ok to attach the document as an exhibit, and answer the question by saying, please refer to exhibit A, the ____. The document speaks for itself.
At the end, have your signature line state that everything is true and correct upon your knowledge, information, and belief, and that you so swear under penalty of perjury. Also, make sure to include a notary line as well.
