CA FAQs/Legal Issues

Interrogatories are questions that can be asked of a party in a civil action to obtain relevant information with minimal expense. In a divorce case, the judicial council has prepared a set of “Form Interrogatories – Family Law”, which requests information specifically tailored to issues in a divorce, such as any agreements between the parties, support provided to or received from others, the other party’s income, copies of tax returns, a list of assets and debts, retirement benefits, any separate property contentions, any claims for reimbursement or credits, children’s special needs, and information relating to attorney’s fees. This information is needed to resolve the issues in your divorce.

Wendy K. Tse has exclusively practiced family law since 1998, with extensive experience in matters pertaining to California divorce, contested custody disputes, child support, and spousal support, among others. She is a member of the Los Angelos County Bar and Orange County Bar Associations and is a part of the Brandmeyer, Gilligan & Dockstader law firm team. View their firm online profile here.
