Form interrogatories in a California dissolution (divorce)

Form interrogatories in a California dissolution (divorce) case are the topic of this blog post.  These form interrogatories can also be used in a legal separation or nullity proceeding as well.

These form interrogatories are Judicial Council Form FL-145 known as Form Interrogatories-Family Law and are a great way to obtain the most information with the least amount of cost or effort.  In the opinion of this author they should be used even in a simple case as they are relatively easy and can be completed fairly quickly. Another benefit is that they do not count towards the “Rule of 35” as they are official form interrogatories.

Note that the petitioner must wait until at least 10 calendar days after service of the summons and petition on the other party or their general appearance to serve any interrogatories unless leave of court is obtained pursuant to Code of Civil Procedure section 2030.020.  The respondent may serve interrogatories at any time after service of the summons and petition.

The form interrogatories can be downloaded in a fillable PDF format at the California Courts website here: http://www.courts.ca.gov/documents/fl145.pdf

The Schedule of Assets and Debts can be downloaded in a fillable PDF format at the California Courts website here:  http://www.courts.ca.gov/documents/fl142.pdf

The following boxes should be checked in every case.

Boxes 1 through 18, 20 and 21.

If box 10 is checked be sure to attach a blank Schedule of Assets and Debts Judicial Council Form FL-142.

Box 19 should only be checked if there are minor children of the marriage or relationship.

Proper use of these interrogatories can assist either party in a California divorce in reviewing their particular case for possible settlement, or trial preparation.
