Discovery in Johnston vs Wake Counties

My attorney has told me that she doesn’t do discovery and that opposing party’s counsel doesn’t either. My impression is that most attorneys don’t. Is this a Johnston County thing? Do Wake attorneys conduct discovery in a custody hearing between two never-married parties?

In some counties attorneys will choose not to do discovery, however, parties still have the right to seek formal discovery since it is allowed under the NC Rules of Civil Procedure.

Discovery in Wake County is more common if the facts and circumstances of a case warrant the need for discovery. But it is not routinely done in every Wake County case.
