Post Judgment Discovery
Post Judgment Discovery Due? Contact Us
When you have a judgment against you, creditors will likely send you post judgment discovery. These are questions that must be answered about your assets. You are to answer them under oath and if you refuse, a Court could hold you in contempt which could lead to you being arrested.
Most post judgment interrogatories will ask you everything about your assets. You will often be required to disclose bank account information as well as other financial account information. Interrogatories must be completed under oath and must be signed by you. Objecting to the questions may be difficult. You only have 30 days to respond to the questions when you receive them and if you fail to respond within 30 days, you can no longer object and you may open yourself up to a motion to compel proceeding.
Request for Admissions
Judgment creditors will try to get you to admit that you have certain assets. If you fail to properly respond, a Court could hold you in contempt. If you do not respond to the request for admissions within the deadline, then they will automatically be admitted under the law. Typically, the deadline is 30 days to respond to a request for admissions.
Request for Production
In addition to the previous discovery, a judgment creditor will almost certainly send you a request for you to produce documentation about your assets. They often want to see your bank statements and other financial documents. Objecting to the production of these documents may not be easy and you only have 30 days to respond. It is important to hire a debt defense law firm if you have been served any post judgment discovery.
