What is discovery and when does it occur during the divorce process?

Discovery is a pre-trial procedure for parties to obtain evidence from each other through various means. Examples of discovery are document requests, interrogatories, and subpoenas. Discovery begins shortly after the initiation of a divorce proceeding and generally continues to be updated throughout the duration of the case in preparation for trial.
