Draft List Of Discovery Documents
If you are an applicant or respondent in a family court jurisdiction matter, our Draft List of Discovery Documents will give you a better understanding of the evidence requirements for your case.
Your solicitor will develop a discovery request list based on your case but an effective understanding of the process puts you in a stronger position. The more strategic you can be in the documents you request, the more effective your case will be. Discovery is a court ordered process and both the Applicant and Respondent must comply with the process so a good understanding is crucial.
Our easy to read resource will help you develop a strategic plan. You will understand from the outset, which documents to request during the discovery process and which to subpoena later in the proceedings.
