Understanding Discovery in Divorce Part 2-Responding to Discovery


Discovery can seem overwhelming. It can also be very time consuming and confusing. Many people get angry when they see what their former spouse is requesting of them. However, your attorney can guide you and narrow the requests down to what you need to provide, and coach you on any appropriate objections. 

When you receive a discovery request from your former spouse it is important that it not go unanswered. There are very specific deadlines involved in discovery. If you are self-represented and unsure of what to do, it is important to consult an attorney. Missing discovery deadlines can cause you to waive your right to object to the requests.

Generally speaking, the information sought from you must be relevant to the issues in your case. Your former spouse cannot use discovery to harass you about irrelevant personal gripes unless there is a legitimate tie to the issues in your case. Because California is a no-fault divorce state, this means you cannot be forced to answer questions about allegations of infidelity unless there is a legitimate financial reason, such as allegations of misappropriation of funds spent not for the benefit of the community. 

However, discovery is not limited to financial issues. It can include requests related to the minor children and allegations of domestic violence to name a few. Your attorney can help you evaluate relevance of any questionable demands.

When responding, it is important that there is honesty and a good faith effort to provide documents. Some requests may seem redundant, but if there are documents you have access to, you are likely going to have to provide them. 

What happens if the response deadline is missed? First and foremost, see if you can agree to extend the deadline before you miss it if you need more time.  Deadline extensions are not uncommon, and can be agreed upon. However, if the deadline has past and no responses were provided, then the right to object has been waived, and even irrelevant of otherwise objectionable requests must be answered. If this occurs, it is important to consult an attorney to see what, if anything, can be done to protect you.

Once you send your responses to the discovery, it is not unusual to receive a letter seeking to “meet and confer” on the responses. This is a letter detailing any deficiencies your former spouse might see with your responses. If the deficiencies continue, they may file a Motion to Compel. This is a request seeking a court order for you to respond. It is important to consult an attorney if this motion is filed, because you could be liable for the attorney’s fees of the filing party if you unsuccessfully oppose a motion.

Overall, discovery can be confusing and comes with possible serious consequences. Seek an attorney’s assistance early on  if you feel overwhelmed with the process.

    Dear Madame, Dear Sirs!

    Widespread web ads for organic growth of behavioural factors.
    website: xn—-ftbeand5abdikisgee.xn--p1ai/home/

    Factors influencing consumer behaviour are certain actions of users on the internet resource, such as:
    logging in to the website, viewing pages, time spent on the website, “clicks” on links, repeated returns to the web page.

    Widespread placement of your ads on the Internet in order to attract potential customers.
    Growth of factors influencing consumer behaviour occurs by the large-scale placement of your ads without specifying the address of your online resource, but with the indication of other features identifying only your company according to which you currently become №1 in the search results. These features can include a phone number, a unique name of the website or company, an identifier (product code, number, promotions, services), a physical address of the organisation and etc.

    The widespread attraction of potential customers to your website, services and products.
    Organic growth of behavioural factors.

    An increase in website visitors who will find your webpage directly from ads using search engines as well as through additional results of a search itself related to a wide range of key queries on your topic.

    1. Mass promotion.
    2. High-speed placement.
    3. Cost.
    4. Placement by subject.
    5. Wide reach.
    6. Regionality.
    7. Organic growth of behavioural factors.


    1.Mass attraction of potential customers to your services and products through direct access from ads.
    2.Organic promotion of your website, due to search engine beginning to additionally suggest it for the largest range of key queries based on your subject.
    3. The absence of “bans” and “filters” of search, due to ads being published without an indication of an url to the web page.
    4. An increase in website traffic, which leads to an increase in orders and an expansion of the your customer base.
    5. “Warm traffic”, since only engaged customers visit the internet resource.
    6. Attraction of legal entities and individuals.
    7. Analysis of demand for goods and services.
    8.Publication of your ads in different countries around the world.


    Ads are published: on billboards, in guest books, on forums, in comments, in catalogues.
    Ads are placed on your: landing pages, YouTube videos, phones, websites, social media accounts, and on links to your other ads.

    In this type of ad a ban by search is not possible, since ads are published without specifying an active link to the web page.

    Working method:
    You send us the text of the ad, where your identifier or unique name is indicated at the end of the message, according to which an engaged user can easily find your online resource in search engine results in order to get more information about your product.
    To do this, identifier or a unique name must be published in the appropriate section of your internet resource и easily and quickly be found in results.

    Randomisation of ads is done according to the formula, which is commonly accepted by many programs. As a result of randomisation, many unique ads are obtained from one ad variant.

    This is achieved by physically synomising the ad text, while the meaning of the messages does not change and remains understandable.
