What Is "Discovery" In My Florida Divorce Or Paternity Case?

In every Florida divorce or Florida paternity case, you will deal with something called "discovery".  That term refers to the search for information in your case.

Discovery of information comes in a number of ways.  In every Florida family law matter, you are required to provide certain financial documents and to answer certain standard questions.  In addition to that, the other side may seek additional documents and ask additional questions as to matters relevant to your case.  Also, each side may require the other party and potential witnesses to appear for a deposition to answer questions under oath.

Your expert New Tampa divorce lawyer will advise you that complying with the rules of discovery is very important and that you should work with your lawyer to comply with the court rules.
