    Default What Questions May the Lawyer for the Other Party Ask Before You Go to Court

    A lawyer for an ex-husband in a post-divorce case in New York has served interrogatories on the wife asking that she list "with specificity" every reason that she intends to present in court as to why she is not employed. The case involves a request for modification of spousal support. Can the lawyer ask that question? Is the question permitted even if the wife answered the same question in response to a prior set of interrogatories?

    Default Re: What Questions May the Lawyer for the Other Party Ask Before You Go to Court

    As the question is relevant to the modification of spousal support, it's a reasonable question to ask during discovery. If the answer has not changed since the last set of interrogatories, the wife can choose either to repeat her prior answer or to refer in her response to the answer that she previously gave.
