How does the discovery process work in a Minnesota divorce?

Pre-trial discovery is a set of procedures for the exchange of information between the parties to a civil case, including a divorce case. In Minnesota, several methods of discovery are used in divorce proceedings. One of the most common is "interrogatories." These are written questions which must be answered by the other party, in writing and under oath. Responses must be served within 30 days, although it is very common for the parties to agree to reasonable extensions.

Regardless of the situation surrounding the child support, those who are in the midst of a dispute must make certain that they are protected under the law.
