50 questions (not really, just a couple)

Dear alljams:

Greetings. No more than 50 interrogatories, including subparts, can be asked without leave of the court. Yes, your ex may do the same thing, if he has a wise attorney. You should only provide the information requested and that information which your attorney agrees to provide.

Yes, you are correct that interrogatories take a long time. In the meantime though, many other things should be happening. Court dates should be set, witnesses interviewed, settlement negotiations, setting depositions, etc. All these things move cases along towards resolution.

Never believe an attorney if they tell you that divorces take years. That is not true, unless there are serious issues with the case and possibly appeals. Most cases in our office resolve in 60 days out of court and within 3-6 months after filing an action, if one is deemed necessary. Thank you.

The response posted above is based upon the limited factual information made available and is not intended as a full and complete response to the question. The only reliable manner to obtain complete and adequate legal advice is to consult with an attorney, fully explain your situation, and allow the attorney sufficient opportunity to research the applicable law and facts required to render an accurate opinion. The basic information provided above is intended as a public service but a full discussion with an attorney should be undertaken before taking any action.

To Ms. Fritts and all other Board Members,

This question is in regard to interrogatroies. It’s my understanding that no more than 50 questions can be asked without the court’s permission. This can be in one set, or broken up .

Right now, the only questions being asked are by my lawyer for proof of my ex’s allegations. Will my ex in turn do the same thing ? Can I just go ahead and give them all the info I have willingly to move this process along ?

I’ve been waiting almost 2 months for answers to a set of 7 questions. If this process is to be used on both sides, this will take forever.

We were separated 2 weeks after the tragic 9/11 incident. The congressional hearings will be over, a monument will be built for the folks who lost their lives, and all the terroist will be captured before this divorce is over.

To all the folks who think they want to go to court… In my opinion it’s not worth it. You may think you’re seeking justice to right a wrong that’s been done to you, but you’ll lose your sanity and money that could have gone to better things, such as your children, rebuilding your life. MEDIATE, SETTLE, whatever it takes…Use court as a last resort only…

Thanks for everything
